Grupo Modelo is a large brewery in Mexico. It has 63% of the Mexican beer market, and exports beer to the United Kingdom, United States and Canada (via a joint venture with Molson Coors Brewing Company UK Ltd.). Its export brands include Corona, Modelo, and Pacfico. Grupo Modelo also brews brands intended solely for the domestic Mexican market, including Victoria (now available in some southwestern U.S. cities) (a recent advertising campaign for this brand was centered on the fact that it is unavailable abroad); Estrella (a local beer found only in western Mexico); and Len and Montejo (originally local to Yucatn but now available nationwide). Grupo Modelo has exclusive rights in Mexico for the import and distribution of beer produced by Anheuser-Busch. Until the 1960s, Grupo Modelo used red poppy flowers in its advertising, where almost any image it used had poppy flowers somewhere in the image.
