Guangzhou Zhujiang Brewery has appointed I Khan Global Brands as sole importer for its Zhujiang Premium Draft beer brand in the US.

I Khan Global said earlier this week that it will look to increase distribution of the brand in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and San Francisco. The imported premium beer category forms part of the importer's "key growth strategy", it said.

Zhujiang is also available in the UK, Canada, Australia, Sweden and France.

In China, Guangzhou Zhujiang is joint market leader in its native Guangzhou province with Anheuser-Busch InBev.
