Archbishop visits Farsons Brewery

The Farsons Group was honoured to welcome Archbishop Mgr. Charles J. Scicluna at the Farsons Brewery in Mriehel on Friday 17th June 2016. He was greeted by the Chairman of the Farsons Group, Mr. Louis A. Farrugia, the Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Norman Aquilina and members of the senior management team of the Farsons Group. His Grace initially met with members of management to familiarize himself with the vision of the Group, its aspirations and plans as well as the investments currently underway. In this discussion, he recognised the strong commitment of the Group’s employees and their contribution to its success. 

Archbishop Charles Scicluna then proceeded on a tour of the Brewery, meeting employees at the Brewhouse, the Soft Drinks Packaging Hall and the Logistics Centre who eagerly greeted the Archbishop as he stopped at the various places of work and chatted informally with many of them. He was also taken on a tour of the new Beer Packaging Facility which is the most recent investment of the Farsons Group. This new beer packaging facility is currently being commissioned and it will be officially inaugurated in September.

Following the tour, His Grace celebrated mass in the Process Block for employees, management and directors. The visit of His Grace Archbishop Charles Scicluna follows that of his predecessors who have been associated with defining moments in the history of the Farsons Group. 

In an address, Mr. Louis A. Farrugia thanked His Grace for visiting the Brewery and meeting with employees. “Farsons has history of almost 90 years and its employees, past and present, have always felt they were part of a family. I am very pleased and proud to see the dedication and hard work of our highly skilled workforce who also share strong values of respect and teamwork.”

His Grace Mgr. Charles Scicluna signed the visitors’ book of the Farsons Group auguring further success and achievements and showing his appreciation for the warm welcome extended to him.
