Supporting domestic rice for brewing produced in Myanmar

At Myanmar Brewery, rice is used as one of the ingredients in the beer, so it is extremely important to secure a stable supply of rice for brewing.
We will work to conclude agreements for contract farming of rice for brewing in Myanmar and contribute to the creation of jobs and stable income for farmers.

Using materials produced in Myanmar

With the aim of contributing to economic growth and job creation, we are working to increase the usage of materials produced in Myanmar (can bodies materials).
