Carlsberg Group has commenced construction of the first international brewery in Myanmar. The brewery will be located on a 54 acre site in Bago, and is expected to employ over 500 people directly, plus providing employment to thousands of other indirectly, as well as greater economic stability in the region.

The brewery will be located near a major rice producing area in Myanmar which, according to Daniel Sjogren, managing director of Myanmar Carlsberg, will mean access to the highest quality raw materials. He says: “We will have access to good quality water and the famous Bago rice. Other raw materials such as malted barley and hops will be imported according to Carlsberg Group’s high quality global specifications.”

Carlsberg Group has also started the construction of a new brewery in China.

Jorgen Buhl Rasmussen, chief executive of Carlsberg Group, coments: “Asia is an important growth region for the group and these two new breweries will place Carlsberg Group in the best possible position to capture a significant share of the future growth. China and Myanmar’s breweries will both embrace modern brewing technology whilst placing significant focus on the environmental impact.”
