Who are we
A partner for growth in Ghana
In Ghana, we are manufacturer and employer first, a drinks company second. We operate in two (2) breweries. We directly support our communities by sourcing and producing locally.
Sourcing local raw materials is key to our strategy in Ghana and has a positive impact, creating employment and revenue in our communities. We currently source 60% locally, a figure we have grown exponentially in recent years.
We continue to expand our agricultural commitment and farmer network. Specifically, we work with over 30,000 farmers through our regenerative farmer programmes designed to boost productivity and provide skills training and tools for development.
We are committed to managing our water use efficiently and increasing access to clean water in water-stressed areas. We have provided over 24,298 people with safety water or sanitation since 2020.
We are actively reducing our environmental impact. Since 2015, we have ensured zero waste to land fill. To address the menace of plastic waste, we have co-established the Ghana Recycling Initiative by Private Enterprises (GRIPE) and joined the National Plastic Action Partnership.
In 2021, we also partnered Coliba Ghana to fund 10 collection centres; 8 in Accra and 2 in Kumasi, in line with our ambition to become sustainable by design.
