Thai Beverage Public Co., Ltd.

Company Background

Thai Beverage, Thailand's largest thirst-quencher, offers both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. One of its best-known brands is Chang beer, which controls the second largest slice of Thailand's beer market, after Singha beer. Thai Beverage is listed on the Singapore stock exchange; the Thai bourse restricts the listing of alcohol-related stocks.

The company was founded in 2003 through the consolidation of 58 beer and spirits businesses, such as the Chang beer, owned by billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi, a Chinese immigrant. Charoen has expanded into non-alcohol business in recent years through acquisitions of beverage makers. Brands owned include green-tea beverage Oishi and est cola, a Pepsi knockoff. In 2012, it acquired a roughly 29% stake in Singaporean beverage maker Fraser and Neave, in line with its long-term strategy to strengthen its non-alcoholic business and operations outside Thailand.

The Sirivadhanabhakdi family's stake in Thai Beverage is around 30%. Charoen is chairman and his son Thapana serves as president and CEO.

While Thai Beverage is its core business, the family also has investments in real estate, hotels, financial and consumer products. It has a majority stake in Thai-listed trading house Berli Jucker, which recently acquired Metro's Vietnam operations. Metro is a German-based chain of warehouse-style retailers and wholesalers.
