Well one of GSK's original companies made Baby Food, and got into pharmaceuticals for the money involved.
Baby food to drugs...they weren't negating years of R&D expenditures in the process.
And Molson-Coors also owns shares in retail stores (admittandly its mostly the beer store) but if the money was right would be right at ease investing in other business. At one point it owned Beaver Lumber and one of the banks that merged with BMO (yes, there used to be a Molson Bank).
Yeah, but retail stores don't require much tooling up and hiring talent.
We're talking about an entire shift in paradigm from buying raw materials and brewing to agriculture. I doubt they'd even consider growing their own hops and barley.
