CASE STUDY: Accra Brewery Ltd

Established in Accra in 1931, Accra Brewery Limited (ABL) is West Africa’s first brewery. It was first registered in Switzerland as Overseas Breweries Limited. The company’s creation marked the start of nontraditional manufacturing in Ghana. In 1975, the assets of Overseas Breweries Limited were taken over by the locally registered ABL to facilitate Ghanaian participation in the business. It later became a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev (ABInBev) after the latter acquired controlling shares of ABL’s former parent company, SABMiller Plc. The product range has grown over the years, and a plant expansion project has been carried out to meet increasing consumer demands. The expansion consists of the construction and installation of three new packaging lines, a warehouse with a hard stand and loading area, an electricity substation, two additional power generators, ten new beer tanks, two additional water storage tanks, a water treatment plant, sidewalks for the location road and a new entrance with a gate house and offices. ABL’s product range now includes Club Beer, Club Shandy, Budweiser, Eagle Extra Stout, Eagle Lager, Beta Malt and Corona Extra.
