COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Danish brewer Carlsberg has bought a minority stake in Chinese micro brewery Jing-A, the company said on Friday.
Carlsberg will distribute beer produced by Beijing-based Jing-A while the Chinese brewer will remain in control of producing its craft and specialty beers and developing its brand, a Carlsberg spokesman said, noting that this was a “small investment.”
He did not disclose financial details of the deal.
The news was first reported by Danish newspaper Borsen on Friday.
