Current business profile
Zambian Breweries plc, is the largest lager and traditional beer producer in the country. Capacity constraints that had previously limited growth in Zambia have now been alleviated with the commissioning of the brewhouse at Ndola in November 2012. Lager volume growth of 12% was achieved through improved availability and an improved economic environment. The premium portfolio benefited from strong growth of Castle Lite, while Castle Lager and Mosi performed well in the mainstream segment. Soft drinks delivered strong volume growth. Traditional beer volumes also posted good growth aided by the launch of Chibuku Super in the first half of the year which has begun to revolutionise the category.
