CUB managing director John Pollaers, said: “This is an early extension of our current contract and recognises the strong performance for the Carlsberg brand which has enjoyed year on year volume growth of 28%.

"We are very pleased with Carlsberg's performance and look forward to continued growth for the brand.”
