To increase the sales volume.
Long term Objectives:
To increase the brand loyalty of Carlsberg.
To time and again remind people that Carlsberg is a premium product. To
uplift the brand image of Carlsberg.

Carlsberg is engaged with the society and has worked hand in hand to ensure the wellbeing of all who are directly and indirectly attached to it.

It maintains the lush greenery in and around the Brewery sprawled over an area of 11 Bighas and building of several dams to protect the adjoining village and to fulfill its commitment towards the environment towards the environment and the Green Movement.
