    Molson Coors Beverage Company has announced plans to invest £10m in its Tadcaster brewery, to increase production capacity and efficiency and reduce emissions.

    The Tadcaster Tower Brewery on Station Road employs over 100 people in roles covering engineering, quality, warehousing, brewing and kegging, health and safety, support functions and site management.

    A programme of significant investment and infrastructure upgrades over the next two years will increase the brewery’s capacity to produce leading beers including Carling, Coors, Madri Excepcional and Worthington’s, using more advanced, energy-efficient equipment.

    This news of a significant period of investment comes as the latest project at the Tower Brewery is almost complete. MP for Selby and Ainsty, Keir Mather, attended to visit the site’s new carbon dioxide recovery facility, which will be operational in early 2024.

    “Carbon dioxide is released during the beer fermentation process, but instead of entering the atmosphere, we will soon be able to recover and transfer carbon dioxide within the brewery before it’s purified and compressed into a liquid for storage,” explained Stephen Moore, director of the brewery.

    “From there it will be turned back into gas to be used in the packaging process, where it will be injected into the fermented product, giving our beer its signature fizz. This will make us more self-sufficient and play an important part in reducing our emissions.

    “This is a landmark moment in our history, and as we prepare to ramp up production in the months and years ahead, it means we can keep making the nation’s favourite beer brands while reducing our impact on the environment.”

    Kier Mather, MP for Selby and Ainsty, added: “Molson Coors is setting a fantastic example in Tadcaster, showing a real willingness to invest for the benefit of its colleagues, the local community and the environment.“The new carbon dioxide recovery facility is hugely impressive, and its impact will be even more so. It’s a source of pride that such iconic brands are made right here on our doorstep, using the very latest technology as together we all work towards a net zero future.”
