The new deal forms part of a wider international agreement between Heineken NV and Molson Coors.
Heineken Ireland has managed the Coors Light brand in Ireland since 1995. During this time Coors Light has continuously out-performed the market and it is now the number Four lager brand in Ireland and the number One lager bottle in the on-trade [AC Nielsen MAT September 2010].
“The brand is in strong growth as a result of a clear consistent strategy and on-going heavyweight investment in the brand,” explained David Moore, Senior Brand Manager for Coors Light, “Coors Light is a star performer in a declining lager market”.
