Our brewery in Windhoek has a total technical brewing capacity of 3 million hectolitres.
We have access to further brewing capacity through our production agreement with Heineken SA who owns the Sedibeng Brewery in Johannesburg.
The Swakopmund Brewing Company is a micro-brewery that also serves as a pilot plant for crafting and testing new beer recipes.
We brew most of our beers according to the German Reinheitsgebot of 1516.
We also produce our soft drinks and non-alcoholic beverages at the Windhoek plant. AquaSplash is sourced and bottled in Okahandja and Oatjo.
We have five packaging lines at our Windhoek site for different sizes of glass bottles, cans and kegs. We run four shifts per day on a 24/7 basis.
We have ISO9001:2015, SANS 10330: 2007 and HACCP certifications.
We deliver products to six depots and five agencies in Namibia.
We export to more than 15 countries, including South Africa, predominantly by road transport. Primary transport is outsourced to Imperial Managed Solutions (Proprietary) Limited (IMS). Secondary distribution between depots and customers is managed by NBL trucks and employees.
Our customers encompass formal and informal wholesale and retail trade outlets, for example, supermarkets, liquor stores, shebeens, pubs and other hospitality outlets. End consumers are adults with a broad demographic profile spanning all income groups.
We take pride in consistently practising responsible marketing through adhering to SAIF’s Code of Conduct as well as our own Responsible Marketing Code of Conduct.
More than half of production is packaged in returnable containers. We have an average return ratio of 97%.
A water reclamation plant assists in reducing the volume of water used as input into our brewing and packaging plants. Newly commissioned yeast extraction equipment will recover beer extract from surplus yeast.
In our communities we encourage recycling through Project Shine, the schools recycling competition, and through our founding membership of the Recycle Namibia Forum.
