Who We Are Farsons Group

Farsons Group is located on the island of Malta in the heart of the Mediterranean. Established since 1928, the Group is engaged in the brewing, production and sale and distribution of own-branded and international beers and beverages, the importation, wholesale and retail of food products and beverages, the operation of franchised food retailing establishments and the management and operation of the newly-regenerated brewery, transformed into a world-class destination, including a brewery experience, catering outlets, a brand store and offices.

With an exceptional portfolio of food and beverage brands, the Group is proud to have been entrusted to represent some of the finest names in the industry which include its own iconic and award winning range of beers and beverage brands: Cisk Lager, Blue Label Ale; Hopleaf Pale Ale, the Kinnie range of soft drinks; San Michel table water and others.

As a long-standing partner of some of the world’s leading food and beverage groups, Farsons is committed to ensuring that the highest product standards and service are universally applied across its prestigious portfolio in line with its long-standing reputation for quality and excellence.

To this end, we have embarked on a series of major investment programmes to ensure that both clients and consumers, wherever they may be, get nothing but the best from us. In 2012 we invested €12.5 million in a new state of the art brewhouse and in 2016 we inaugurated a €27 million investment in a new beverage packaging facility which will further enhance our competitiveness while ensuring that we seek to deliver a sustainable and quality driven operation.

In 2023, the official opening of the €86 million Farsons Brewery regeneration project saw one of Malta’s finest 20th-century industrial buildings transformed into a vibrant green office campus and world-class business destination.

The Group is today made up of Simonds Farsons Cisk plc, the holding company that is also the manufacturing arm of the Group, and principle companies, Farsons Beverage Imports Company Limited, Food Chain Limited, Quintano Foods Limited, EcoPure Limited and The Brewhouse Company Limited.

As the first non-banking private sector company to be listed on the Malta Stock Exchange, where its securities are traded under the code SFC, the group is fundamentally conscious of its corporate responsibilities and remains committed to all stakeholders and its deeply held values which demand a high degree of teamwork, transparency and integrity in all that we do.
