Launched into the Nigerian market in August 2012, Hero lager beer has won the hearts of consumers in the South & East region and has become a symbol of status and class. The success of the brand draws from its strategic cultural resonance with the people who have christened Hero, ‘Oh Mpa’, in reverence and as a mark of respect (Mpa means father in Igbo language). In 2018, Hero was knighted with a new crown cork -a red cork and the title of “Dike Mba Nile” by the Obi of Onitsha, His Royal Highness, Igwe Nnaemeka Alfred Ugochukwu Achebe.

Trophy was launched in 1978 and it became the first brand to be launched in Nigeria by International Breweries. The beer was first introduced in the south-west region but has grown to be accepted in other parts of the country because of its distinctive taste, quality and absence of sugar. Trophy beer is a market leader in its category.
