Lager Beer

Lager beer volume was up by 31% on prior year. The volume achieved was at par with the historical peak of F13. This was achieved through stable pricing,steady production output and extensive distribution.

The last year was a tale of two trading halves. The first half which covered the pre- and post-election period, was characterised by initial positive consumer sentiment,  and fiscal policies that drove consumer spending. The shortage of foreign currency became more pronounced in the second half, thus compromising product supply.

Sorghum Beer

Sorghum beer achieved a volume growth of 5% above prior year as demand for the category remained firm despite the cost pressures on imported packaging materials, spares and the repricing of agricultural cereals in the fourth quarter.
