China Mengniu Dairy Co. has agreed to buy Kirin Holdings Co.’s Australian beverage unit Lion Dairy & Drinks for about ¥45.6 billion, the Chinese dairy giant’s latest foray into the continent.

Mengniu will pick up Lion’s milk, yogurt and juice products, while Kirin will keep Lion’s beer, wine and spirits business, the companies said in a statement Monday. The deal is expected to close in the first half of 2020, they said.
