The UK subsidiary of Danish brewer Carlsberg Breweries A/S, Carlsberg-Tetley, has changed its name to Carlsberg UK. The company said it was a reflection of the growing alignment of the business with its parent company. 
 
The company said despite the name change, the Tetley's brand and the Joshua Tetley brewery in Leeds will continue to play an important role in Carlsberg UK's portfolio.
 
Doug Clydesdale, managing director brands and sales Carlsberg UK said: "Over the past few years we have witnessed the growing integration of our business with that of our parent company. Working within the broader international framework has increasingly allowed us to enjoy a deeper level of collaboration and shared culture with our sister companies in the group. Changing our name to reflect our international parentage is a natural evolution for our business in the UK against a backdrop of continued globalisation of the beer industry and underlines our determination to continue to drive the business forward. For our customers however, it is business as usual - the change of company name will not affect Carlsberg UK's terms of trading."
 
The new visual identity will be reflected across the company's operations.  And as part of this closer alignment with its parent company, Carlsberg UK will adopt the Carlsberg Breweries' international vision:  "Carlsberg - Probably the best beer company in the world".
