Year 2022 is Probably the Most Memorable Year for the employees and friends of Carlsberg Malaysia as one of the leading brewers in the world – Carlsberg celebrates its 175th birthday globally.
To commemorate this milestone, Carlsberg Group Chief Executive Officer Cees ‘t Hart visited the Malaysia operations to also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Carlsberg Danish Pilsner manufactured locally in the Shah Alam brewery. Carlsberg Malaysia is the first brewery built outside of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Evolving from a global flagship brand to Probably The Best Beer in the World – Carlsberg Danish Pilsner, the operations in Malaysia has also innovated its brew and drinking experience with two quality brews, namely Carlsberg Smooth Draught that is brewed longer for its signature smoothness and the strong and full-bodied malty lager, Carlsberg Special Brew, offering a perfect pint of beer for every beer lover at any occasions.
“Malaysia is one of the key growth drivers in Asia for the Group. I’m very proud that Carlsberg Malaysia is agile, resilient and safely navigated the storm and emerged stronger than ever, throughout the pandemic. The second half of the year poses three main challenges – the uncertainties of COVID-19, impact from the war in Ukraine and the growing global inflation. I have full confidence that, together with our customers, partners and employees, Carlsberg Malaysia will continue to brew for a better today and tomorrow,” said Hart, making his first visit in Asia after the travel restrictions are lifted in Malaysia.
