AUS: Coopers to expand brewing capacity
Coopers reports strong sales for new beers
Australian brewer Coopers is to boost production capacity by 50% to 90m litres from September.
The South Australia-based firm produced a record 62m litres of beer over the 12 months to the end of June, up 11% from the previous financial year, it said today (3 August).
Coopers also managed to reverse a five-year decline in sales in its home state, lifting sales there by 3%.
Managing director Dr Tim Cooper said strong ongoing sales growth led by the company’s new lagers - the low-carbohydrate Coopers Clear and the pilsner-style Coopers 62 - had necessitated the addition of a permanent second shift at its Adelaide brewery, commencing in September.
