40 years of brewing Carlsberg in Malta

Carlsberg Breweries and Simonds Farsons Cisk are commemorating 40 years of collaboration with a visit by Carlsberg Brewery officials, Peter Hammarstedt – Managing Director Export & License, Jens Peter Philbert – Vice President – ELUD Western Europe and Sidsel Marie Lyhne – International Commercial Graduate.

They were hosted by Chairman of the Farsons Group Louis A. Farrugia, the Group Chief Executive Officer Norman Aquilina and members of the senior management team.

Simonds Farsons Cisk successfully concluded discussions to brew Carlsberg in Malta in 1978 and the first locally brewed and bottled Carlsberg was launched on the Maltese market three years later.

Commenting on this historic occasion, Mr Louis A. Farrugia, Farsons Group Chairman, said “We are proud of our longstanding commercial relationship with one of the most prestigious Brewery Groups in the world. Many of the values that Carlsberg professes, Farsons shares and endorses.

Throughout the past 40 years, Farsons has been a beneficiary of the immense technical knowledge and know-how that Carlsberg possesses.”

At the end of the visit to Malta, Mr Peter Hammarstedt from Carlsberg said “It has been truly inspiring to visit Malta, and the Farsons Group. Their dedication to the Carlsberg brand is as strong as ever, and we are impressed by how the Farsons Group is continuing to invest and develop. Great and longstanding business partnerships are of course built on a shared business interest, but more importantly on trust and respect and by sharing core values.”
