Lion is New Zealand’s largest alcoholic beverage company. Our focus is on the production, marketing, sales and distribution of beer, wine, spirits, cider and non-alcoholic beverages.
We are one of New Zealand’s largest purchasers of agricultural products, buying approximately $96m worth of inputs from NZ farmers each year. We are an integral part of the retail and hospitality industries, and own and operate LK retail stores throughout New Zealand.
Our beverage portfolio includes NZ’s best-loved brands including Speight’s, Steinlager, Mac’s, Emerson’s, Panhead, Stella Artois, Guinness, Corona, Wither Hills, Morton Estate, Lindauer, Huntaway, and Saints. We also proudly distribute the most popular spirit brands in almost every category.
Our success in NZ demonstrates our commitment to our customers, to providing the brands that consumers adore, and to our core purpose, ‘championing sociability and helping people live well’.
Lion NZ makes a significant contribution to New Zealand's economy, generating about $814m worth of economic activity for the country and employing around 1,100 people directly. Indirectly, Lion's operations create employment for around 3500 Kiwis.
We recognise our business exists within the community, not outside it. It is our responsibility to preserve the natural resources our business relies on for current and future generations and to encourage healthy, responsible enjoyment of our products. We contribute around $4 million a year to the Government's moderation programme through the Health Promotion Agency, we spearheaded the introduction of industry-led consumer education programme Cheers! and we have reached thousands of New Zealanders through our own consumer education programme Alcohol&Me.
