“In a press statement released on 10 February 2004, Carlsberg, the Danish brewers, announced that it and the Danish Industrialization Fund for Developing Countries (IFU) is to acquire 50% of the share capital of Lhasa Brewery in the TAR. The acquisition makes Carlsberg the market leader in the TAR’s fast growing beer market. ... As Lhasa Brewery is free from debt, had a turnover of approximately $20 million in 2003 (Â€16 million, Â£11 million) and has approximately 45% of the
market, it makes it one of the most profitable breweries in the region. According to a report by Agence France Presse (AFP), the current owner of the brewery, Tibet Galaxy Science & Technology Development Co. Ltd. and Wilton Pacific will first set up a 50-50 brewery venture, capitalized at $29.6 million ( Â€23 million, Â£15.6 million). Carlsberg will then purchase Wilton’s stake in the venture, which is expected to have annual production capacity of 150 000 tons.”
