Nigerian Breweries to appeal Court ruling on Amstel Malta wrongful use of “low sugar” claim – Counsel

Nigerian Breweries Plc, has said it will appeal a recent ruling by an Edo High Court in the case of Prof. Ernest Izevbigie vs Nigerian Breweries Plc. The court had ordered Nigerian Breweries to apologise to one of its customers, Mr Izevbigie, who had brought a suit against the company for allegedly wrongfully inscribing “low sugar” on one of its brands, Amstel Malta.

The former Vice Chancellor at the Benson Idahosa University and Professor of Biochemistry had claimed through lab test results that the said malt drink contained far more sugar content than the company was willing to admit and thus was misleading to the public to have the inscription “low sugar”.
