CANADA: Asia Pacific Breweries closes Canadian import unit
Asia Pacific Breweries has confirmed the closure of its intended Canadian importer, Tiger Canada.
The company, a joint venture between Fraser & Neave and Heineken, said yesterday (4 August) that its Singapore unit has voluntarily dissolved Tiger Canada. Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore (APBS) acquired the Canadian company last year, with a view to it sourcing Tiger beer from APBS for distribution in the province of Quebec in the country.
Prior to the purchase, Molson had handled the distribution of Tiger for APB in Canada. When contacted by just-drinks, a spokesperson for the brewer said that the distribution agreement between APB unit Tiger Export Private and Molson Canada ended on 8 June, with both parties parting ways amicably.
The Bruce Ashley Group has subsequently taken over the distribution of Tiger beer in the country, the spokesperson noted.
