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.

The sale is unconditional, including no further regulatory approvals required and is expected to be completed in early 2021.
