LUKASA, Zambia , September 10, 2012 (press release) – Due to the growth of mining activities in Northern Zambia, Zambian Breweries Plc. recognises the increase in demand of our products, and as such, possible supply challenges.

Zambian Breweries Plc. Managing Director Anele Malumo said in Lusaka yesterday that his company was well aware of the issues surrounding product availability, and that this is the very reason that the company was investing $90 million into a new brewery in Ndola.

“We know of the issues of product undersupply, especially in the Northern part of the country where there is an obvious increased activity in mining and therefore an increase in disposable income,” Malumo said.

He adds, “It is for this very reason that Zambian Breweries Plc. decided to construct a brand new 100 million litre plant that effectively translates into 267 million bottles per year to address this situation.”

The new plant is expected to pack its first beer in November 2012, just before the country goes into its peak festive season.

“We have, in the past few years, had an increase in market demand, and to make sure we satisfy the needs of our valued customers, we decided to build a bigger and better state-of-the-art brewery to be able to respond to the increased demand,” Malumo said.
