Molson Coors Brewing to Make Further Investment in Britain’s Biggest Brewery

As part of its five year Burton Brewery redevelopment plan, Molson Coors, Britain’s biggest brewer, has announced a further investment of £28 million in brewing technology and infrastructure. The investment takes the total now invested in the facility to £75 million and is the biggest single capital investment in British brewing over recent decades.

Part of the investment programme includes £21 million state of the art bottling line that offers Molson Coors greater capability to meet the on-going needs of its consumers through bottle and pack innovation.

The newly announced investment will support brewing a large proportion of the 1.2 billion pints of beer brewed at Molson Coors’ Burton Brewery. The modern brewing technology will maintain the brewer’s high quality standards to ensure UK favourites, such as Carling, Coors Light and Cobra continue to delight future generations of beer drinkers.

Simon Cox, managing director of Molson Coors UK & Ireland.

Simon Cox, managing director of Molson Coors UK & Ireland, says: “We are excited to be investing further in Burton Brewery and its workforce as we continue our redevelopment programme. Funded by the biggest investment in our industry for decades, the new infrastructure and technology at the brewery will maintain our rich heritage of brewing in Burton.”

The new buildings and technology, including a new energy centre, will also help Molson Coors to achieve its target of reducing energy use by 25 percent and cut 20 percent of its greenhouse gas use by 2020 as outlined in the company’s 2013 Corporate Responsibility Report.
