Lion CEO Stuart Irvine says consumers widely believe that beer contains a lot of sugar and preservatives, but he notes that the sugar content is actually just 0.1 per cent. The Japanese-owned brewing giant will launch a $A10m marketing campaign during the 2015-16 summer to promote the low sugar content of beer, as part of its strategy to arrest a decline in sales of mainstream beer. Lion is also adding nutrition information to the packaging of its beer brands.
