Guinness Ghana Breweries Plc (GGB Plc) is the leading Total Beverage Business in Ghana and a subsidiary of Diageo PLC, the world’s leading premium drinks business with internationally celebrated brands including Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff and Baileys.

In Ghana, GGB Plc is the only beverage business listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) and our parent company Diageo, is listed on both the London and New York Stock Exchanges.

Our ambition is to be the Best Performing, Most Trusted and Respected Consumer Goods Business in Ghana. We operate in two (2) breweries; Achimota in the Greater Accra Region and Kaase in the Ashanti region.

Our company is sustained through innovation. We constantly look to create new beverage experiences for our consumers with innovations such as Baileys Delight, Smirnoff Chocolate and Smirnoff Pineapple Punch.

As a partner for growth, we seek to have a positive impact in Ghana as both an employer and manufacturer. We source locally and invest in sustainable agriculture and brewing operations. We are careful stewards of water, with our Water of Life programme providing over 700,000 people with access to clean water. We also want to ensure our products are enjoyed responsibly therefore we continuously educate our customers, consumers and employees about consuming in moderation.

In line with our grain to glass sustainability agenda Guinness Ghana sources more than 60% of its raw materials locally through our Local Raw Material (LRM) program. This program started in 2012 in line with Government’s Policy initiative to incorporate the use of locally available raw materials in the production of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Currently we source 61% raw materials locally, increasing from 12% in 2012. This translates to more than 90,000 metric tonnes Local Raw Materials (LRM) from 2012 to date. We expect to reach 70% LRM uptake by 2023.  Working with more than 30,000 small holder farmers in 11 of the 16 regions of Ghana, we source sorghum and maize.  

Our total portfolio includes 33 brands in beer, spirits, Ready-to-drink beverages and non alcoholic malta beverages. Most brands are produced locally. Guinness Ghana is also proud to cooperate with Heineken International and the brands Heineken, Star and Gulder are an important part of our beverage range.

We look forward to be an active member of the Ghana Netherlands Business Chamber of Commerce and look forward to enjoy a drink with you in the near future!
