Fraser & Neave Coca-Cola
F&N in Malaysia has a long and illustrious history. In fact, it is one of the oldest companies around. When it started in 1883 by John Fraser and David Chalmers Neave, it was called the Singapore and Straits Aerated Water Company. This would be the pioneer in aerated water business in Southeast Asia then. After that, it would be sold before a string of diversification, restructuring and expansion followed including venturing into beer and other areas.
The main milestone came in 1936 when F&N landed the rights to franchise Coca-Cola and sell them in Singapore, Malaya and Brunei. This would then continue where it would take up more brands including their own F&N brand of drinks, Schweppes and others. Today, F&N continues to be the sole distributor of Coca-Cola drinks in Malaysia.
F&N and subsidiaries
The subsidiaries under Fraser & Neave Holdings Bhd are involved in the growth and development of the company. This includes marketing and sale of the products, dairy products and property development as well. Among the brands that F&N Malaysia is involved in includes:
- F&N Fruit Tree
- F&N SEASONS, NutriSoy and NutriWell
- F&N Ice Mountain
- Cap Junjung
- and many more
The Coca-Cola brand itself would be sufficient to push the competition ahead. As the market leader in the segment, it has helped to strengthen F&N’s position in the consumer’s mindset over the years. The share price of F&N has been performing very well throughout the years while it continues to reinvent itself through better and more products for its customers.
