To commission a production plant in Anambra

South African Brewery (SAB) plans to foray into the beer market in Nigeria with the commissioning of a new production plant in Anambra State by September 2012.

The brewery owns and operates seven breweries in South Africa, brewing at a capacity of 3.1 billion litres a year.

“The perception of Nigeria by foreigners is far worse than it is in reality. The truth, is issues about Nigeria are usually over exaggerated by foreigners,” Anambra State governor, Peter Obi said.

According to Obi, Africa and the Middle East contribute 11.5% of Heineken’s global income, of which 6% is from Nigeria.

“Today, Guinness derives 6.1 per cent of its global income from Nigeria,” he added.

SAB has ten beer bands and five flavoured alcoholic beverages, including Carling Black Label, Hansa Pilsener, Castle Lager, Castle Lite and Castle Milk Stout.
