Op­po­si­tion Leader vis­its Far­sons Brew­ery

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Over the last 10 years, Far­sons has in­vested just over €100 mil­lion in new fa­cil­i­ties to en­sure that the com­pany re­mains com­pet­i­tive, and to grow its busi­ness in Malta and other mar­kets.

Far­sons Group Chair­man Mr Louis A. Far­ru­gia was speak­ing dur­ing a visit to Far­sons Brew­ery in Mriehel by the Leader of the Op­po­si­tion Dr Adrian Delia. He was ac­com­pa­nied by the Hon Kristy De­bono, the Hon Karl Gouder, Ing Mark An­thony Sam­mut, Mr Ivan Castillo, and other of­fi­cials.

Dr Delia toured the Brew­ery op­er­a­tions and viewed the many new in­vest­ments that have taken place. He was able to ob­serve the high de­gree of au­to­ma­tion and high-qual­ity stan­dards that the op­er­a­tion main­tains.

Far­sons has al­ways en­deav­oured to im­ple­ment good hu­man re­sources prac­tices. In this re­gard, Far­sons has on­go­ing train­ing and re-skilling pro­grammes for its 800-strong work­force to en­sure that its man­age­ment and em­ploy­ees are com­pe­tent to meet to­mor­row’s chal­lenges.

“As we cel­e­brate 90 years of brew­ing in Malta, we are in­deed grate­ful to our com­mu­nity for the sup­port that we have al­ways re­ceived through­out our his­tory. We shall en­deav­our to con­tinue to grow our busi­ness in new mar­kets,” said Mr Far­ru­gia.

Just as Far­sons’ 1950 Mriehel Brew­ery was a ground­break­ing work­place in many ways, to the point that to­day it is con­sid­ered a unique part of Malta’s in­dus­trial her­itage, the new work­ing en­vi­ron­ment that Far­sons has cre­ated over the last years con­tinue to set stan­dards for the fu­ture, while of­fer­ing mo­ti­vat­ing work spaces for all em­ploy­ees.
