Nairametrics had reported how the management of the company tends to survive the Nigerian beer war. According to the management of the company, the company’s strategic plans are aimed at consolidating its market share in the country.
The company announced plans to consolidate on its position as the race in the beer market becomes stiffer in the face of intense competition, increasing cost inflation, and weak consumer spending.
Plans for its Premium lager segment
The company revealed plans to grow volumes in the premium lager segment using sales push of recently-launched Tiger Lager. The bottle will be offered in 450ML sizes (in contrast to the commonly available 600ML bottles) at pocket-friendly prices.
The stout segment
Nigerian Brewery management continues to maintain some level of presence in the stout segment with 20% of the market. The company says it expects to grow volumes of its stout brand in the country. The stout segment is dominated by Guinness with its Guinness Stout brand and it is guiding its stout market share aggressively.
The Malt segment
Nigeria Brewery’s malt segment has suffered in recent years, but the brewer still leads this space with its Maltina and Amstel Malta brands. The management stated that it will leverage on the increasing health consciousness (i.e the shift away from sugary carbonated drinks) of a cross-section of Nigerian consumers.
