Lautoka Brewery to cease operations Paradise Beverages plans to cease brewing operations at the Lautoka Brewery during the second half of 2014.

In a statement, the company said the site will be redeveloped into a distribution warehouse for beer and rum products in the West and for export.

The company's existing permanent workforce at the Lautoka Brewery will be offered new roles at the Lautoka Distillery, the redeveloped Lautoka warehouse and the Suva Brewery. Casual and part-time employees who may be laid off due to the change will be assisted to find alternative employment.

The changes follows ongoing works to expand the Suva Brewery as part of the company's FJ$44million three-year investment plan.

The second stage of the plan, worth $18million, will begin in early 2014. This will include the installation of a brew-house, malt silosm yeast progagation plant and other plant and equipment upgrades to replace the existing dated Suva Brewery plant and equipment.

The project will double the site's brewing capacity and create additional employment opportunities in the Fiji operations.

The company's $44million plan includes the upgrade of the Lautoka Distillery to expand capacity and replace aged plant and equipment. Details are expected to be announced early next year.

Chairman John Murphy said the investments are key enablers of the company's export strategy, commencing with first orders of Fiji Bitter and the recently acquired Vonu Brand to Australia from early 2014.

The company's first major export order of Bounty Rum to Australia was completed this month.

Meanwhile, on completion of the three-year plan, the company's Fijian manufacturing operations will encompass beer and alcoholic-ready-to-drink (ARTD) production at Suva, rum and spirits distilling operations at Lautoka as well as the beer and soft drink operations in Samoa, Murphy said.
