is the first 100% fully fledged black owned (KZN)

is classified as a newly established Level 1 BBBEE rated and verified company, with strong industry credentials under
the management of our vast practically experienced master brewer(s) and other industry fundis.
This is a relatively new brewery house which is on the brink of penetrating lucrative markets in a rapidly-growing economy.
The current trend towards an increase in the number of entrepreneurs, and competition amongst existing companies presents an
opportunity for KASI BREWERY
to penetrate the beer brewing (manufacturing) market.
The South African liquor industry is worth about R124 Billion
per annum with more than 32%
contribution to the country’s GDP, whilst
more than 60%
of most beer products are consumed by local (township) markets nationally.
Current industry dynamics have their roots in developments that took place almost three decades ago, where the country’s political
isolation together with the then government’s tolerance of market concentration, and the presence of vested interests saw the
emergence of a small number of key players that controlled the market.
However, transformation in the sector has become a key objective of the government, which is hoping not only to increase market
opportunities to historically disadvantaged groups, but also to break up what it perceives to be anti-competitive conduct by some of the
major industry players.
Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) is a key issue currently debated within the sector, and relevant industry
charters have been concluded.
Overall, the South African liquor industry is currently still predominantly white corporate owned, owing to a large extent to the fact that
its past regulatory regime has led to a highly concentrated ownership patterns, and subsequently high barriers to entry.
