HARTLEPOOL’S Camerons Brewery has clinched a five-year agreement with Carlsberg UK.
Camerons, which employs 85 at its Lion Brewery site, is to brew Tetley’s keg Milds and Imperial beers. Production will transfer from the Tetley’s Brewery in Leeds to Camerons in mid-2011.
“We are delighted to have found a quality partner to brew Tetley’s keg Mild beers and Imperial,” said Andy Hume, brewery director, Tetley’s Brewery.
“We are pleased to have come to this agreement with Camerons, which is based in a real heartland for Tetley’s Imperial.”
Chris Soley, director and general manager of Camerons Brewery, added: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Carlsberg UK to contract brew Tetley’s keg Milds and Imperial at the Lion Brewery, Hartlepool.
“This partnership allows Carlsberg UK to brew three keg beers and this landmark deal adds another global brewer to our portfolio of contract customers. Camerons has invested a substantial amount of finance in developing the site and increasing the brewing capacity as well as significant resources in adopting world class manufacturing techniques and standards.”
Copehagen-based Carlsberg joined with Danish brewing giant Heineken to buy Scottish & Newcastle in 2008.
