:"Lion Nathan National Foods" redirects here - The Kirin owned Australian dairy and juice manufacturer, National Foods, has been merged with Lion Nathan.

Lion Nathan is an alcoholic beverages company that operates in Australia and New Zealand and produces and markets a range of beer, wine, RTDs and spirits. It is a subsidiary of holding company Lion Nathan National Foods, wholly owned by the Japanese Kirin Holdings Company Limited, and consequently the Mitsubishi Group. The company employs around 1,800 Australians and 1,400 New Zealanders.

The company was formed in 1988 with the merger of LD Nathan & Co and Lion Breweries, and was listed on both the Australian and New Zealand Stock Exchanges under the symbol LNN. On 17 September 2009, Lion Nathan shareholders overwhelmingly voted to accept a 100% takeover offer by Kirin. The takeover was implemented on 21 October 2009, and the company was delisted.
