Kirin and Lion announced on Thursday 26 November 2020 that they have entered into a sale agreement to sell the Dairy & Drinks business to Bega Cheese Limited (Bega).

We believe Bega, an established dairy and food company with more than 120 years of heritage, is well placed to drive the Dairy & Drinks business forward given its deep dairy capabilities and strong commitment to iconic Australian brands and the local dairy industry.
