Foster’s Group has extended it contract with Corona after negotiating a new licensing deal with Mexican brewing giant Grupto Modelo.

“Corona is a lead brand in the CUB portfolio and we’re delighted to extend our 22 year partnership with Grupo Modelo,” a Foster’s spokesperson told TheShout.

“The agreement reflects a great working relationship and we are proud to have built Corona Extra brand into Australia’s favourite imported premium beer.”

Foster’s is believed to generate almost $70 million in pre-tax earnings per year from the Corona contract.
