LAOS: Carlsberg and TCC take stakes in Lao Brewery
According to reports in the Thai press, Carlsberg Asia and TCC, a Thai drinks company controlled by the Thai drinks magnate, Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi, have each acquired a 25% stake in the Laos state-owned beer producer, Lao Brewery.
The Laos government, which took back total control of the company after the withdrawal of two former Thai investors last year, has retained a 50% stake in the brewer. No financial details of the deal have been disclosed.
The Lao Brewery controls around 98% of the Laotian beer market with an annual production of around 600,000 hls and a capacity of around 1m hls. TCC has around 60% of the Thai beer market and is already a partner with Carlsberg in Thailand.
