Another round of activity in Coors' growing portfolio includes plans to boost distribution of Coors Light in England and Wales following the acquisition of Carling Brewers. The US company's md, Peter Coors, said: "We have a distribution business we didn't have before and we are reviewing sales of the brand in Scotland with the intention to take it to the rest of the UK. The timing of this is up for grabs." Coors said there were currently no plans for brewery closures or job losses following the purchase of the Carling business. He added: "We're undertaking a strategic review of the organisation and of specific sites. It will take a while to come to conclusions." {{DRINKS }}
