Diageo is a multinational alcoholic beverage company. It currently operates in more than 180 countries and produces in more than 140 sites around the world.
“The interest we have seen for the Baileys brand has been extraordinary and we look forward to introducing more indulgent, culturally relevant Baileys treats for adults across the region,” said Carolina Verdugo, Director of Brand Management at Beanstalk.
