Lion is a leading beverage and food company with a portfolio that includes many of Australia and New Zealand’s favourite brands. Lion was formed in October 2009 under the name ‘Lion Nathan National Foods’, when Kirin Holdings Company Limited completed its purchase of Lion Nathan and merged the business with National Foods – which it has owned since 2007. In 2011, we became known as Lion.
Today, Lion employs close to 7,500 people across Australia and New Zealand and boasts a portfolio of market-leading, household-name brands in beer, spirits, wine, milk, fresh dairy foods, juice, cheese and soy beverages. 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.
We are committed to doing the right thing for the long term by investing in our core strategic assets – our people, brands, and production facilities – for long-term, sustainable growth. We aim to play a positive role in the communities in which we operate by maintaining a culture of environmental and social sustainability.
While our head office, is in Sydney Australia, our footprint stretches far and wide. We have operations in every Australian state as well as New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.
