Diageo has finalized the sale of its fruit-flavored liqueur known as “Safari” to a Portuguese firm named Casa Redondo. Casa Redondo is famous for their alcohol beverages. This sale fits in with Diageo’s plan of action which involves concentrating on efficient portfolio management.

“The sale of Safari is indicative of our commitment to sustainable growth and value creation at Diageo,” said John Kennedy. Who serves as President Europe at the company before. He added; “This deal enables us to focus more deeply on areas like tequila or whisky. Where we have core strengths as we strive towards becoming one among top performing global consumer goods enterprises recognized for trustworthiness.”
