A snapshot of our History

Our history is rich, our stories are varied, and together they make us who we are.

Asahi Beverages started to form in 2014 when we announced plans to integrate the operations of the Schweppes Australia and Asahi Premium Beverages businesses.  Later that year, we announced plans to extend the integration to include Independent Liquor (now Asahi Beverages) in New Zealand.

In October 2018 we changed the name of our Schweppes Australia business to Asahi Lifestyle Beverages, a name which more accurately describes our extensive and varied non-alcohol portfolio which includes Schweppes and many other iconic brands.

In June 2020, we welcomed Carlton & United Breweries to the Asahi Beverages family, expanding our range of great tasting beverages with the addition of some of Australia’s most popular and well-loved beer brands.

Today, we employ more than 3800 people across Australia and New Zealand, with manufacturing facilities and sales teams in both countries.
