Singapore’s Octopus Group and China’s Reignwood Group have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) yesterday, 19 February 2019, to combine resources and efforts as strategic partners, to drive business growth through sharing of business networks, local domain knowledge, route-to-market sales channels and funding sources.
Octopus Group is an entrepreneurial, dynamic family of companies specialising in the import, distribution and marketing of beverages in South East Asia. Our extensive portfolio represents local and international brands that have a well-known provenance, heritage and history and resonate with all trade and consumer sectors - from high-end cocktail bars to local hawker centres.
Established in 2002, we’re a fully independent group, which allows us to respond with innovation and agility to an ever changing market. As a result, the business continues to grow at pace, spanning a full spectrum of services: world class logistics and warehousing, outstanding infrastructure, sales and marketing expertise, wholesaler management, brand management and activation.
Our business strategy rests on three core pillars: growth, efficiency and sustainability. We’re focused on delivering growth for our company and our partners. We do this through effective use of resources, plus investment in our infrastructure, allowing us to grow with the highest levels of efficiency. We’re also committed to entering into sustainable growth partnerships and to implementing solutions for a sustainable planet.
In short, through long-term relationships. we’re all about unlocking potential for our partners.
As a result of rapid growth and to continue to best service our partners, customers and consumers, we have changed over the years. We now service Singapore through a single distribution business, Octopus Distribution Network. We are proud of our history and the following summarises some of the businesses we’ve developed over the years, all of which continue to grow under our ODN brand:

Through Singapore Beverages Pte. Ltd (SingBev) we provide brand and route-to-consumer management for some of the world’s largest alcohol brands and brand owners. We know, thanks to our many years of experience, that when building a successful beverage brand, a solid foundation and infrastructure are essential factors.
So, leveraging the Octopus Group infrastructure and resources, we offer a combination of back office efficiency and shared resources across Singapore’s On and Off-trade sales channels.
