Creating local employment in Sudan

White Bull Lager is the flagship product of Southern Sudan Beverages Ltd (SSBL) – the first brewery in Southern Sudan for 50 years. The brewery is the only local manufacturing plant in the city of Juba, and produces one of the few new formal consumer beer brands.

SSBL commissioned its brewery in South Sudan in 2009 and invested US$37m to build the facility in Juba. To date, its operations in the region have created employment for 200 Sudanese. Its pioneering land lease agreement ensures that the local community receives royalties from the development and benefits from the business’ continued success. SSBL, through SABMiller, is one of the largest private sector contributors to the South Sudanese economy, paying excise tax at both national and state level.

Through our Corporate Social Investment (CSI) activities we seek to provide local communities with clean water or to treat waste water so it can be used for irrigation or other purposes. In Africa, a number of our operations have established water distribution projects to provide local communities with clean, drinkable water. We currently have projects in Tanzania, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland, Southern Sudan and Uganda.
