The week in pictures

On the same continent but world’s apart, as Japan’s “unprecedented“ heat wave continues to blanket the country, sales of summer essentials such as beer, ice cream and air conditioning units have surged across the country this month.

Major brewer Kirin is already planning to ramp up its production at all of its factories across the country, and increase its low-malt output by about 20% over last year, while Suntory Spirits also plans to increase production of ‘chuhai’, a canned alcoholic drink, as well as its whisky and soda highballs by 15% in the two months of July and August.
