Danish Brewing Company to begin production in Kenya

Danish Brewing Company East Africa, a subsidiary of US firm Bounty Global Management Company founded in 2015, will begin production of Carlsberg, Tuborg, Holsten and Kronenbourg beers in Kenya.

The US $45 million (KSh 4.59 billion) investment will involve the construction of a modern plant in the Naivasha Industrial Park situated around 100 km from Nairobi. At full capacity the plant will produce 12-15 million cases of beer annually (around 1-1.3 million hl) and will employ 350 people. In August, Danish Brewing Company East Africa acquired King Beverage, the exclusive distributor of Carlsberg and Tuborg beer in Kenya, from Centum Investment for US $1.3 million.
