East African Breweries, Head of Reserve and Key Accounts Kenya, Nick Mutinda, weighed in on the day’s events saying, “I must applaud all the participants and victors for an exemplary round of golf seen today. As excited as we are with the day’s proceedings, we are more importantly glad to add our voice to the cause of the day, which is strengthening sustainable agribusiness value chains in Kenya. As KBL we are cognizant of the importance of the Kenyan and by extension, the regional agribusiness value chain.”
KBL, through its beer brand Tusker, has continued to build momentum in the recent past through strategic partnerships and executions as the brand carries on into its 100th anniversary. The brand has continued to support local sport including soccer and athletics.
