China Foods Limited’s $649 Million Sale of wine and non-beverage business to China Foods (Holdings) Limited


Norton Rose Fulbright is advising Hong Kong-listed China Foods Limited on a US$649 million wine and non-beverage business disposal to China Foods (Holdings) Limited, a unit of its state-owned parent enterprise COFCO Group.

The disposed business is primarily involved in the production and distribution of products under the “Greatwall” brand, which has interests in five China-based production plants in the China and another five wineries globally.

After the business disposal, China Foods Limited will become the only beverage-focused platform of the COFCO Group, which will help enhance China Food’s cooperation in the beverage business with The Coca-Cola Company.
