Namibia Breweries Limited
Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) is a Namibian brewery founded in 1920 when Carl List and Hermann Ohlthaver acquired four small breweries with financial difficulties. The breweries were merged under the name South West Breweries Limited (SWB). SWB changed its name to Namibia Breweries Limited when Namibia gained independence on March 21, 1990. Ohlthaver & List Group of Companies are still the majority shareholder.
Currently NBL exports 60% of its production to South Africa and 22 other countries world-wide.
The Ohlthaver & List Group of Companies in 2004 launched a new value system, Mwenyopaleka, which means rebirth in the local Oshiwambo vernacular.
Mwenyopaleka embodies the Group’s collective commitment to challenge our historic and cultural past to improve the future for everyone.
As a member of the Ohlthaver & List Group of Companies, Namibia Breweries Ltd. adopted the Mwenyopaleka values that aim to align the Group’s activities.See more
