The plant is operating on state-of-the-art brewing equipment produced in Belgium, Germany and Switzerland. The production process itself is designed to take into account the latest technologies of energy efficiency, health, safety and environment protection. The special advantage of the Kyiv plant is in its convenient, functional space planning. The annual output capacity of the Kyiv Brewery is 473 million liters of beer.

Zaporizhzhia Brewery


The company’s Zaporizhzhia plant was built based on an existing Zaporizhzhia Beer Plant No. 2 constructed in 1974. Starting from 1996, when the plant started cooperating with BBH Ukraine, it was renamed to Slavutich. In 2012, the enterprise was yet again renamed after the company changed its name to Carlsberg Ukraine.

In 1996, the plant was equipped with new machinery produced by the leading companies of the world’s brewing industry. Thanks to that, this brewery became a cutting-edge European-style enterprise with an efficient production and highly automated technological processes.

The obtaining of certificates of the international standards ISO 9001 (Quality Management Systems) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) occurred to be a remarkable event in the operation of Zaporizhzhia Brewery. The fact of getting those ISO certificates became yet another proof that the company keeps growing consistently, always taking care of the quality of its products.

The current annual output capacity of the Zaporizhzhia Brewery is 407 million liters. The plant employs over 500 people.


Lvivska Brewery

Lvivska Brewery was established in 1715 by monks, at the request of Count Stanisław Potocki. From that time on, this enterprice is one of Lviv’s highlights and is considered a part of its identity, always representing Lviv in the best light throughout its growth.

As early as in the middle of the 19th century, the brewery made it to the best three breweries of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and became the largest brewing enterprise in the region. During the Soviet period, the company turned into the Lviv State-Owned Food Production Company “Kolos”, which comprised five breweries across Western Ukraine. In 1993, the company was privatized and became the Open Joint-Stock Company “Incorporated Enterprise Kolos”.

It began cooperating with BBH Ukraine in 1999. That moment marked a new stage of development for Lvivska Brewery: over $35 million was invested into the plant modernization. The brewing technology is also being constantly improved, to align the quality of the product with the highest global standards.

The output capacity of Lviv Brewery is about 231 million liters. The plant employs 321 people.

In 2004, Lvivska Brewery received a certificate of compliance of its integrated quality management system and the environmental management system with the international standards ISO 90012000 and ISO 1996.

Year 2015 marked an anniversary for Lvivska Brewery; the oldest brewing plant turned 300.
