About Lion


Lion is a leading beverage and food company with a portfolio of market-leading names in beers, spirits, wine, juice and fresh dairy foods including milk, cheese, yoghurt and soy beverages. From operations across Australia and New Zealand to team members in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and the US, we strive to set standards in performance, culture and sustainability today, and for years to come.


Our origins date back to the 1700s, but the business as we now know it was formed in October 2009 under the name 'Lion Nathan National Foods'. Kirin Holdings Company Limited had then completed its purchase of Lion Nathan and merged the business with National Foods. In 2011, we were renamed Lion.

At Lion, we are already living our future. As a collective, we are committed to doing the right thing for our people, brands, environment and community, we call it ‘constructive capitalism’. This means that we understand, practice and maintain a culture of environmental and social sustainability in everything we do for our Australian and New Zealand farmers and suppliers, and the communities in which we operate.
