Carlsberg profits up

DRINKS giant Carlsberg said that net profit in 2012 grew 6pc year-on-year to 5.5bn kroner (€0.73bn).

The company has created a new TV ad Spartacus, where colleagues loyally stand up for each other in the face of a punishment from their boss.

To coincide, it is running a themed competition on the Carlsberg Ireland Facebook page this week where Expedia holiday vouchers worth €1,500 with €500 spending money can be won.
