Cambodia – National Beer. National Pride.
A new beer has arrived in Cambodia: A truly Cambodia Beer, made by Cambodians, using ingredients from Europe and German technology.
The beer market in Cambodia is highly competitive. In the last three years two new brands, Phnom Penh Beer and Kingdom Beer, have been introduced to the national beer market. And now again, on November 1, a new beer was launched by a new market player: Cambodia Beer. The new competitor is the US$60 million Chip Mong Group funded Khmer Brewery plant, which has partnered with major international brewery manufacturer Ziemann Group.
