Share it

Rwandan brewer Bralirwa has registered 213 Per cent growth in volumes contributing profit after tax of 2.91 billion Rwandan francs ($3.53 million), in the brewery’s half year financial results.

Statistics indicate that the Rwandan brewer Bralirwa’s first-half pre-tax profit more than tripled from last year.

Profits at the brewer, controlled by Heineken, the world’s second-largest beer maker, surged to 2.91 billion Rwandan francs ($3.53 million), from 929 million francs in the first half of 2016.

In a statement Blalirwa said that it had faced “a challenging operating environment” in the first half, but had managed to minimise the impact on earnings “through price … management, as well as a strong cost focus.”

Bralirwa, Rwanda’s oldest brewery, was started in 1957 and is known for beers like Primus and Amstel, as well as a range of sodas produced under licence from The Coca-Cola Company.

The firm said it expected some difficulty in the second half from “cost pressures and constrained consumer spending” and that this would likely depress earnings.

Earnings per share jumped to 2.03 francs for the period from 0.58 francs a year earlier. ($1 = 824.9700 Rwandan francs)
