TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC GROWTH
Incorporated in 1969, Carlsberg Malaysia Group celebrated its 50th anniversary of brewing excellence and contribution to the local economy in 2019.
The Group currently operates 17 sales offices across Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak on top of our Singapore operations based in Zhongshan Park. Carlsberg Singapore Pte. Ltd. also owns a 51% equity share in Singapore importer MayBev Pte. Ltd. (MayBev), which distributes Japanese premium alcohol brands especially Asahi Super Dry, the best-selling beer brand in Japan.
Our economic contribution is twofold; our operations create value for the local workforce through employment opportunities while contributing to the national economies of Malaysia and Singapore via direct and indirect taxes, excise duties, and support of the local F&B marketplace.
Through our Malaysian and Singaporean operations, we contribute to SDG targets 8.1 and 8.2 by supporting economic prosperity, higher productivity and innovation by providing decent work and economic growth in the markets we operate in.
In Malaysia alone, the Confederation of Malaysian Brewers Berhad (CMBB) estimates that the brewing industry in Malaysia alone supports 61,000 people in direct or indirect employment while taxes, salaries and profits are equal to 0.3% of gross domestic product.
