SABMiller to Invest US$110 Million in Nigeria

ABMiller's Nigerian subsidiary, Intafact Beverages Ltd, announces the expansion of its brewery in Onitsha, South Eastern Nigeria.

SABMiller made an initial investment of over US$100 million in the Onitsha brewery, making it the largest single investment in Anambra State for almost 20 years.

Due to growth and in particular the success of Hero Lager, a further US$110 million will be invested in the brewery to triple its current annual capacity from 700,000 to 2.1 million hectolitres. Currently, the business directly employs 300 local people and the investment will lead to the creation of a further 400 direct jobs.

The capacity expansion work has already commenced and is due for completion in the first quarter of 2015. The brewery will continue to produce brands including Hero Lager, Castle Milk Stout and non-alcoholic malt beverages Grand Malt and Beta Malt.
