Diageo Africa

Our success in Africa is built on a rich heritage. Since the 1820s, when Guinness first shipped to Sierra Leone, we have grown through our brands. In the 1890s Johnnie Walker arrived in Kenya and in 1962 the first Guinness brewery outside the British Isles was built in Nigeria. We seek to have a positive impact across Africa as both employer and manufacturer. We source locally and invest in sustainable agricultural and brewing operations. We are careful stewards of water, with our Water of Life programme providing 10 million people access to clean water since 2007. We also want our products to be enjoyed responsibly and campaign to ensure we all #drinkpositive.

Our people

Diageo employs over 4000 people in its businesses in Africa, and much more indirectly through the production, distribution and promotion of its brands. We are particularly focused on driving diversity and inclusion and have developed strong women’s networks in each market, including the Spirited Women’s Network. Nearly 30% of senior leaders in Africa are women. 4 of 11 country leadership teams are either at gender parity or majority female. Across Africa, we encourage mobility and experience by giving employees the opportunity to move between markets and continents.
