Steinburg's Mercadona famous beer is one of the best-selling in Spain. Behind the success of some of its varieties is the Valencian company Font Salem, part of Damm. This company closed the 2018 financial year with a 10.5% increase in sales compared to 2017 (up to 253 million euros) thanks, in part, to its agreement with the Juan Roig brand and the boom in beer in the country.
In recent years its turnover has grown considerably. Five years ago, in 2014, its sales reached 192.2 million euros. Since then they have not stopped growing.
Much of this data is due to Mercadona and the boom in beer consumption in the country. Juan Roig's company has two own brands for beer: Steinburg and 1897. Font Salem produces references for the entire chain, such as Steinburg sin. It also produces other references such as Suave, Clásica or Especial.
In recent years, it Mercadona has made changes in its strategy with beers. Thus, it went from buying from four suppliers in Spain to 20 companies. This is a bet that gives preference to Spanish companies over foreign ones. Own-brand beer continues to be a very important pillar, although its shelves contain references to Mahou, Heineken or Damm
