We are proudly Nigeria’s pioneer and largest Brewing firm. Our company was incorporated in 1946 and in June 1949, we recorded a landmark when the first bottle of STAR lager beer rolled off our Lagos Brewery bottling lines. This first brewery in Lagos has undergone several optimization processes and as at today boasts of one of the most modern brew house in the country.
In 1957, we commissioned our second brewery in Aba. The Aba Brewery has also recently undergone several optimization processes and has been fitted with best in brewery technology. In 1963 we commissioned our Kaduna Brewery while Ibadan Brewery came on stream in 1982. In 1993, we acquired our fifth brewery in Enugu. A sixth brewery, sited at Ama-eke in 9th Mile, Enugu was commissioned and christened Ama Brewery in October 2003. Ama Brewery is today the biggest and most modern brewery in Nigeria.
Operations in the Old Enugu Brewery were however discontinued in 2004. We acquired a malting Plant in Aba in 2008.
In October 2011, our company bought majority equity interests in Sona Systems Associates Business Management Limited, (Sona Systems) and Life Breweries company Limited from Heineken N.V. This followed Heineken’s acquisition of controlling interests in five breweries in Nigeria from Sona Group in January 2011. Sona Systems’ two breweries in Ota and Kaduna, and Life Breweries in Onitsha have now become part of Nigerian Breweries Plc, together with the three brands: Goldberg lager, Malta Gold and Life Continental lager.
In 2014, we got approval from the Securities and Exchange Commission and the respective shareholders of both Nigerian Breweries Plc and Consolidated Breweries Plc to merge the operations of both companies. The merger became final on December 31, 2014
Following the successful merger, we now have three additional breweries in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, Awo-Omamma in Imo State and Makurdi in Benue State. The merger also brought an additional seven brands into our portfolio.
Thus, from that humble beginning in 1946, our company has now grown into a Brewing Company with 11 breweries, 2 malting plants and 26 Sales depots from which our high quality products are distributed to all parts of Nigeria.
Nigerian Breweries Plc has a growing export business which covers global sales and marketing of our brands and dates back to 1986. NB Plc offers sales, logistics and marketing support to make our brands shelf-ready in international markets, including world-class outlets such as TESCO and ASDA Stores in the United Kingdom. Our brands are available in over thirteen countries, across the United Kingdom, South Africa, Middle-East, West Africa and the United States of America.
