New Beer Plant to Fight Imports


Omolo, Leo Odera, African Business


East Africa's breweries are undergoing major expansion at a time when South African beer is causing havoc in the market. Leo Odera Omolo reports on the latest move in the regional chess game.

A Capital Brewery Ltd (CBL) beer plant is currently under construction in the new Tanzanian political capital of Dodoma and will soon start bottling Kenyan made beer under licence in a bid to stem the tide of South African imports to the region and take advantage of high demand in Tanzania.

The third phase will cover the construction of another bottling plant in Mbeya, Southern Tanzania which is expected to help realise the company's production target of 6.4m crates per year by late 1998. …
