Meanwhile, Ted Akiskalos, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia added that at Carlsberg, they care about how their beer is made and enjoyed, a constant ‘pursuit of better’ inspired by our founder J.C. Jacobsen throughout our history of more than 170 years.

“From our yeast and barley to our packaging and glassware, we believe it must always be possible to do things better, hence the introduction of a new look and feel for Carlsberg that represents our ongoing commitment to do so.

“Loyal Carlsberg drinkers can rest assured that while the brand looks modern and new, our beer is still brewed with the same natural ingredients and same attention to quality that gives Carlsberg that same great taste,” said Ted.
