Lion’s revenue is mainly derived from brands created right here in Australia and New
Zealand.
And because of this, we recognise that the success of our business is intertwined with the
success of the local communities in which we operate. Indeed, our iconic brands are often
symbolic of the regions that have nurtured them.

through employment, sourcing and other investments
