Caribbean Development Company Limited (CDC)
In July 1947 the Caribbean Development Company Limited (CDC) was formed with seven persons and in 1950, the award winning Carib Lager beer was launched with an annual production of 10,000 hectolitres. Nearly 56 years later, the brewery employs over two hundred employees and produces over 1,000,000 hectolitres of product annually.
In 1983 the brewery facilities were expanded to facilitate the increasing demand locally, as well as exports to international destinations. Two additional breweries are located in St. Kitts and Nevis and Grenada. New brands and flavours, (including Carib Pilsner Light, Stag Beer, Black Wolf, Smalta & Smalta Smiles, Ultramalt, Shandy Sorrel & Lime, and Ginseng Original, Lime & Apple), were developed and launched over time, moving the company from one pinnacle of success to another.
The Brewery has formed partnerships with International Companies such as Guinness, Interbrew, Ginseng-Up Corp and Diageo, and as a result several international brands are produced under license for local and export consumption. These include Guinness Stout, Mackeson Stout, Ginseng-Up and Smirnoff Ice.
