Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Bhd is looking to produce at least two premium beer brands locally in the next 6-12 months, Managing Director Soren Ravn was quoted as saying by The Star on November, 16.??He said at present the brands are being imported from countries, such as Japan, Mexico and France.??Without revealing the brands, he said one of it, is a current premium product, under the company’s umbrella.??”By producing the premium beers here, we can save a lot in costs, such as import duties, transportation and logistics.??”Currently, the duty on imported beer is RM5 per litre. So you can calculate the amount we can save,” he told a media briefing on the company’s third quarter results. ??Ravn said producing premium brands locally can also result in the price of the beer going down, as Carlsberg Malaysia has no additional cost to impose on consumers. He said the company’s current brewery in Shah Alam has enough capacity and the technology expertise to produce the beer locally.
