Fraser and Neave, Limited ("F&N" or the "Group") had its origins, more than a century ago, in the spirited decisions of two enterprising young men, John Fraser and David Neave, who diversified from their printing business to pioneer the aerated water business in Southeast Asia in 1883. From a soft drinks base, F&N ventured into the businesses of beer in 1931, dairies in 1959, property development and management in 1990 and publishing & printing in 2000. In 2012, the Group divested a substantial part of its beer business. In 2013, as F&N celebrated its 130th year of operation, it also welcomed its new majority shareholder, the TCC Group, which is engaged in food and beverage, real estate, industrial trading and consumer products, insurance and agriculture. In January 2014, through a distribution in specie and re-listing of Frasers Property Limited by way of introduction on the Singapore stock exchange, the Group demerged its Properties business.
