Cambodian Beer Goes to America

A container load of Angkor Beer set sail for the United States from the port of

Sihanoukville on Jan 9 kicking off the start of a new overseas market for Cambrew

Ltd. The beer will initially hit store shelves in Long Beach, California, the site

of a 50,000-strong resident Cambodian community.

Cambrew says that its marketing strategy will expand to include central and northern

California in the coming months, and that it is looking at breaking into the French

market later this year.

Angkor Beer has been sold in Japan since 1992 and exports to Canada were established

in September 1997.
