Nigerian Breweries Plc, said it will lessen the impact of the new excise tax on tobacco and alcohol on consumers that is set to come into effect on 4th June by intensifying cost saving initiatives.

The brewer said it would seek to increase its local sourcing of raw materials as well as attempt to obtain further improvements in its sorghum value chain.

The firm added that it will consolidate its earnings through improved consumer value engagement, market penetration, stocking to hedge against market volatility as well as ensuring a balance in the management of input costs and price consumers pay for its products.
