HISTORY
Guinness Anchor Bhd (GAB) was formed in 1989, with the merger of Guinness Malaysia Bhd and Malayan Breweries (Malaya) Sdn Bhd, whose parent companies were Malayan Breweries Ltd (the present Asia Pacific Breweries Ltd) and Guinness Overseas Ltd (GOL). GOL is owned by Diageo Plc, the world's leading premium drinks Group with an outstanding collection of brands across spirits, wine and beers. Following the merger, GAB was listed on the main board of Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange during the same year.

GAB operates the Sungei Way Brewery which started operations in 1965. Located in Selangor, the brewery occupies a land area of 23.72 acres and oversees Guinness, Tiger, Heineken, Anchor Smooth, Anchor Strong, Kilkenny, Anglia Shandy and Malta in the country.

GAB is the first and only brewery in Malaysia to receive the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) certification from the Ministry of Health and received the ISO 9001: 2008 certification, having fulfilled the additional requirements of ISO 9001: 2000. Today, GAB is the market leader of the Malaysian beer and stout industry. PRINCIPLE ACTIVITIES

BUSINESS ACTIVITIES

INDUSTRY (F&B)
In the past half-century, the food and beverage industry has blossomed from a collection of mom-and-pop operations to a trillion-dollar powerhouse led by huge international corporations. Familiar names like Coca-Cola, Starbucks and McDonald's can be found in every corner of the globe. The overarching theme dominating the food and beverage industry is exploding global demand and rapidly rising food prices. The breakneck economic growth of countries such as China, India, Brazil and Vietnam gives billions of people the ability indulge in ways previously enjoyed only by those in developed nations. A massive influx of consumers onto the global food market has resulted in a rapid and sustained increase in food prices, stoking global inflation. The related shift to ethanol and other bio-diesels in the face of rapidly rising energy prices has only exacerbated the world's food inflation headache. Although some members of the food and beverage industry (primarily farmers and agribusinesses) benefit from higher prices, most corporations in the industry have seen their cost of doing business increase, biting into profit margins. These higher costs are passed, in part, onto consumers, who find their discretionary spending restricted when they must spend a larger chunk of their paycheck at restaurants and grocery stores. So, just as oil prices are a key economic indicator, so too are the prices of key agricultural commodities such as corn, wheat, and soybeans. MANAGEMENT
