History

2009

SABMiller enters the Nigerian beer market by acquiring an interest in Pabod Breweries in Port Harcourt. SABMiller also agrees to acquire an interest in Voltic International Inc. Voltic has water businesses in Ghana and Nigeria.

2012

From the 1st January SABMiller took operational management control of the Castel Nigerian business, International Breweries. This resulted from the combination of the Castel and SABMiller businesses in Nigeria and Angola.

In August His Excellency Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria commissioned the new Onitsha brewery in South Eastern Nigeria. This was SABMiller's first 'greenfield' brewery facility to be built in the country following an investment of over US$100 million. The new brewery marked the launch of 'Hero', a new local brand for the region.
