Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (“ThaiBev”, and together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”) is a leading beverage company in Southeast Asia and the largest in Thailand. The Group's vision is to be a world-class total beverage company embodying commercial excellence, continuous product development and premiumization, as well as professionalism. ThaiBev's business consists of four segments – spirits, beer, non-alcoholic beverages, and food.

The Group was listed on the mainboard of the Singapore Exchange in 2006. In 2012, ThaiBev expanded its business overseas through the acquisition of Fraser and Neave, Limited (“F&N”), a highly-recognized company in Singapore with a portfolio that boasts many renowned brands. With the acquisition of F&N, the Group further cemented its position as the leading beverage producer and distributor in the region. In 2017, ThaiBev further broadened its presence in the region with the acquisition of a 75% stake in the


Grand Royal Group (“GRG”), the largest player in Myanmar's whisky market, as well as an acquisition of a 53.59% stake in Saigon Beer-Alcohol-Beverage Corporation (“SABECO”), a leading beer producer in Vietnam, which made the Group the largest beer player by volume in Southeast Asia.



Businesses and Products

As of 30 September 2020, ThaiBev has 218 subsidiaries and associates, including 19 distilleries, three breweries, and 21 non-alcoholic beverage production facilities. The Group also has an extensive distribution network covering 400,000 points of sale in Thailand. In addition, ThaiBev has an international presence in over 90 countries. The Group has five production facilities in Scotland which are known for producing single malt scotch whiskies such as Balblair, Old Pulteney, as well as Speyburn; has interests in two production facilities in Myanmar which produce the top-selling whisky in the country; and owns one distillery in China which produces the famous Yulinquan Chinese spirit.

ThaiBev's most recognized spirits brands include Ruang Khao, SangSom, Mekhong, Hong Thong, and Blend 285, as well as GRG's iconic Grand Royal whisky; and the Group's signature beer, Chang, is very popular among Thai beer drinkers, while SABECO's Bia Saigon and 333 are the top-selling beer brands in Vietnam. In the non-alcoholic beverage space, ThaiBev's leading brands include Oishi green tea, est cola, and Crystal drinking water, as well as F&N's sparkling drinks and 100PLUS isotonic drink. In addition, the Group operates Japanese restaurants, as well as ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat food businesses through its subsidiary Oishi Group Public Company Limited. ThaiBev has also started branching out from these well-established Japanese restaurants and food products, and is accelerating the expansion of its food business by leveraging its subsidiary Food of Asia and its franchise outlets under KFC, the most popular quick service restaurant brand in Thailand.



The beer industry is the main business that helps make the Thai Beverage Plc. empire into a progressive and strong conglomerate as it currently is through its perennially highest selling product until today – Beer Chang, the international Gold Medallion winner – born from the hearts and pride in being Thai.

Beer Chang is produced from three breweries with international standard. One in Kamphaeng Phet belongs to the Beer Thai (1991) Public Company Limited, another in Bang Baan district, Ayutthaya belongs to Beer Thip Brewery (1991) Co., Ltd. and the other in Wang Noi, Ayutthaya belongs to the Cosmos Brewery (Thailand) Co., Ltd.

 Beer Thai (1991) Public Company Limited



Beer Chang was conceived with the visionary outlook of the top executives to expand the beer market with a Thai taste albeit with international quality, to give the consumers an alternative with the fervent belief in the brewing and production capability of the Thais. The first bottle of Beer Chang rolled off the production line on April 4, 1994, from the brewery in Bang Baan district, Ayutthaya. It was officially marketed on March 2, 1995.

The popularity of Beer Chang quickly and continuously increased. This led to a major expansion in production capacity to respond to consumer demands. A new brewery was constructed in Kamphaeng Phet under the management of the Beer Thai (1991) Public Company Limited. It later became a public company in 2001, with a registered capital of 5,500 million baht.

The Kamphaeng Phet brewery began construction in November 1999 at the cost of 9,000 million baht. It started beer production on October 12, 2001 and the first bottle of Beer Chang rolled off the brewery on November 23, 2001.



It has a land area of 1,600 rai, utilizing the latest production technology in the world. Every step in the production process is highly efficient with all the standards implemented throughout the process with emphasis on energy conservation, pollution control and environmental awareness. The Company received ISO 9002: 1994 certification on September 26, 2000 and ISO 9001: 2000 certification on September 12, 2001. The environmental standard certification ISO 14001: 1996 was awarded to the company on November 7, 2001.
