Coors Brewers has changed its name to Molson Coors Brewing Company (UK) Limited.
Announcing the move, chief executive, Mark Hunter said:
“This is a positive move which clearly signals our company’s parentage and recognises the influence and contribution of both the Molson and Coors families in co-creating one of the world’s most significant brewing organisations, with operations spanning the globe from the United States, Canada and Mexico through Europe to China and Japan.”
“Operationally, we remain the same organisation in the UK. The company registration number and registered office will not change and any contracts which our customers and suppliers currently have in place with Coors Brewers Limited are unaffected.
“I hope our customers and suppliers will see this forward-looking move as a further sign of Molson Coors intent to stand up for beer in the UK and commitment to build strong brands that grow the beer category, evidenced recently by Carling’s much publicised efforts to drive 1 million people back into Britain’s pubs and the launch of the Bittersweet Partnership, which aims to make beer more appealing to women."
Molson Coors Brewing Company (UK) Limited is the fifth largest brewer worldwide and has UK breweries in Burton on Trent, Alton and Tadcaster. Its portfolio includes Carling, Coors Light, Grolsch, Worthington’s, Caffrey’s and Sol as well as a range of speciality beers and lagers.
