Carlsberg Vietnam

Carlsberg Group in Vietnam

Carlsberg was the first large Danish multi-national to enter Vietnam in 1993. For the first 20 years, Carlsberg’s JV partners managed its Vietnamese holdings under Carlsberg Indochina. In 2012, a fully dedicated Carlsberg management team was established and consolidated operations into a single unit with two legal entities (Carlsberg Vietnam Trading and Carlsberg Vietnam Breweries).

Carlsberg Vietnam produces and markets Carlsberg, Tuborg, Huda, Huda Gold, Huda Ice Blast, Halida and 1664 Blanc.
