About Us

Lion is one of Australasia’s largest food and beverage companies, employing approx 6,700 people across Australia and New Zealand.

With a proud history extending back to 1840, we market premium brands in the dairy, juice, soy, beer, cider, fine wine, spirits, alcoholic ready-to-drinks and non-alcohol beverages categories.

We are the leading brewer in both Australia and New Zealand, and are proud to be home to four out of the top ten beer brands in Australia and six of the top 10 beer brands in New Zealand. Our brands are also market leaders across the dairy and juice categories.

This diverse portfolio, produced across 33 sites, collectively generates revenues of around $5 billion each year.

Lion is a company focused on long-term, sustainable growth. We have a clear ten year strategy to extend our leadership in our alcohol businesses and reinvigorate our beer markets; transform our dairy and juice businesses and champion the nutritional credentials of our portfolio; and build our presence in high-value categories in targeted Asian markets. To achieve this we invest in our core strategic assets – our people, brands, production facilities and supply chain – to generate value for our customers and consumers.

In addition to direct employment, we make a significant contribution to the Australian and New Zealand economies. We are one of the region’s largest purchasers of agricultural goods and an integral component of the retail, hospitality and tourism industries.
