Coors' new name

10 April, 2009

Coors Brewers

has changed its name to Molson Coors Brewing Company (UK) , with immediate effect .

Chief executive Mark Hunter

said: "This is a positive move which clearly signals our company's parentage and recognises the influence and contribution of both the Molson and Coors families in co-creating one of the world's most significant brewing organisations."

He said that operationally, it remains the same organisation in the UK.

"The company registration number and registered office will not change and any contracts which our customers and suppliers currently have in place with Coors Brewers

are unaffected," he said.

"I hope our customers and suppliers will see this forward-looking move as a further sign of Molson Coors' intent to stand up for beer in the UK.

"[It also reveals our]


to build strong brands that grow the

beer category, evidenced recently by Carling's efforts to drive

one million shoppers back into beer aisle and the launch of the Bittersweet Partnership, which aims to make beer more appealing to women."

Molson Coors

is the fifth largest brewer worldwide and has UK breweries in Burton

upon Trent, Alton and Tadcaster.

Its portfolio includes Carling,

Coors Light, Grolsch, Worthington's, Caffrey's and Sol as well as a range of speciality beers and lagers.
