Carlsberg production in Thailand continues

The recent dispute between Carlsberg Breweries A/S and Singapore-based Chang Beverages Pte. Ltd. over Carlsberg Asia Pte Ltd., which is the joint venture of the two companies, will have no effect on the production and distribution of Carlsberg beer in Thailand, a spokesman of the Thai liquor tycoon who owns Chang Beverages told Thai media.      Chang Beverages is a subsidiary of Beer Thai (1991) Co., Ltd. of Mr. Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi. Carlsberg Breweries announced on August 1 that the company had decided not to continue its joint venture with Chang Beverages after the two sides failed to resolve their disagreement regarding the joint venture.      According to Mr. Thanit Thamsukati, the spokesman of Mr. Charoen, this will not affect the production and distribution of Carlsberg beer in Thailand.      Carlsberg beer in Thailand is produced by Carlsberg Brewery (Thailand) Co., Ltd. which is owned by Mr. Charoen’s TCC Group, he said, adding that the activities in Thailand under TCC Group will continue.      “We bought the license from Carlsberg to produce and distribute the beer in Thailand until 2020. So production will continue until the contract ends,” he explained.      The Wang Noi Brewery produces over 100 million litres of Carlsberg beer per year. The marketing and distribution of the beer is handled by Asia Bev., which is another subsidiary of TCC Group. Read also: “Carlsberg Breweries ends joint venture with Chang Beverages”
