The Group benefitted from the creative 2011 Chinese New Year festive campaign and the successful execution of Carlsberg’s new global positioning with the tag line, “That Calls for a Carlsberg”. Our flagship Carlsberg brand remains the No 1 beer brand in Malaysia and we continue to focus and grow our premium portfolio through our subsidiary Luen Heng F & B Sdn Bhd. Our position in the premium beer category was further strengthened with the recent launch of Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc. Our associate company, Lion Brewery Ceylon PLC also delivered strong profit growth.”On the outlook for the rest of the year, Carlsberg Malaysia expects to continue to benefit from the investment in Carlsberg’s new global campaign, “That Calls for a Carlsberg”, which is now aligned in over 140 countries around the world. The new Carlsberg large bottle format, introduced in the 2nd quarter has been extremely well received by trade customers, consumers and other stakeholders.
