HONG KONG, Nov. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In this month’s episode of ‘The 100 Club’, CNN anchor & correspondent Cyril Vanier profiles five companies from around the world that have existed for over a century and learns the secrets behind their success. Vanier also discovers how these companies are adapting and striving to continue their legacies in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Since its foundation in 1899, Suntory has grown into one of the largest distilled drinks manufacturers in the world. And in recent years it has expanded into soft-drinks, health supplements, restaurants and flowers.
But with its commercial success has come a desire to protect the natural resources essential to creating the company’s products. CNN learns how Suntory’s Hakushu distillery in Japan’s Southern Alps is an example of how the company harnesses the country’s unique water and climate to produce its iconic whisky.
Like many businesses have experienced, the Covid-19 pandemic has provided new challenges. CNN learns how Suntory plans to develop its e-commerce and home delivery services in order to reach their global customers.
Also in this 30-minute program, CNN catches up with brewing company Anheuser-Busch, piano giant Steinway & Sons, the First Bank of Nigeria, and the San Diego Zoo as they reflect on their past, present and the path they are taking for the future.
