Grow their revenues

Kenya’s alcoholic beverage market has in recent years attracted large companies seeking new clients to grow their revenues.

Pernod Ricard, for instance has introduced the Glenlivet Founders Reserve, a single-malt scotch to the local market.

A report by Euromonitor International says that incumbents such as East African Breweries have also noticed the trend and have rolled out more products to maintain their market share.
