4th Asian Excellence Recognition Awards 2014
ThaiBev was established in 2003 to consolidate a number of leading spirits and beer businesses in Thailand belonging to our founding shareholders and other investors. In 2006, we registered ThaiBev’s listing on the Singapore Exchange (“SGX”), the market cap of ThaiBev is currently US$ 18 billion (as of 30 September 2016). Subsequently, ThaiBev expanded its business to the non-alcoholic beverage and food sectors to diversify our product portfolio, enhance logistics efficiency, and mitigate business risks. Today, ThaiBev is not only Thailand’s leading beverage producer, but also one of Asia’s largest beverage producers. Our business consists of four segments – spirits, beer, non-alcoholic beverage, and food.
