Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) – a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group – continues with its annual gesture in contributing to celebrating Namibia’s Independence abroad. On Friday, 22 February 2019 NBL handed over 360 cases of its World Premium Beer, Windhoek Lager to the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation for distribution to all Namibian Embassies across the globe, in celebration of Namibia’s 29th Independence celebrations.
Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Christine //Hoëbes accepted the donation on behalf of the Minister, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah. The Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation will ensure that all Namibian Embassies abroad will have proudly Namibian beer to enjoy during their Independence celebrations. NBL Manager: Supply Chain, Abrie du Plooy officially handed over the donation on behalf NBL Managing Director, Wessie van der Westhuizen. Du Plooy: “This annual contribution towards our Independence celebrations, is NBL’s way of sharing in the excitement of a free Namibia, and the optimism of a prosperous future for our beloved country. We also understand the role NBL plays in Namibia and its economy, especially with the number of employment opportunities we have thus far created and will still create in future as well as our contribution to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). As a result, we will continue to commit ourselves to making the best of what we have, to continue producing world class products, as this is what NBL is known for. Without government, the support of Namibia and all NBL consumers locally and abroad, NBL would certainly not be where it is today and would not be able to pursue its purpose of ‘Creating a Future, enhancing life’ for all Namibians.”
//Hoëbes in her statement complemented NBL on its contribution towards Namibia’s economy, and commended the proudly Namibian establishment on its efforts to promote Namibia and its products, and abilities to the broader globe. //Hoëbes: “This annual donation is not only a contribution towards Independence celebrations, and about drinking beer. It is also meant for marketing our country and its products. I also commend NBL for its commitment to promoting responsible drinking, and for living up to its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSI), as well as its contribution to job creation and the Namibian economy.”
This donation is an annual gesture by NBL for the past 29 years.
