Nigerian Breweries Plc. – one of the leading players in the Nigerian Consumer Goods sector, specialized in the production and sales of Alcoholic & Non-alcoholic beverages, released its unaudited financial statements for Full Year 2019, on Thursday the 13th of February, 2020.

The company’s Revenue for Full Year 2019 declined slightly by 0.43% to ₦323.01 billion, compared to ₦324.39 billion in FY’2018. This decline in revenue was a result of the decrease in sales of brewed products in Nigeria, which remains the primary geographical region for the brewer’s product accounting for over 99% of its targeted market.
