ZAMBIAN Breweries has pleaded with distributors and bar owners to follow the government’s directive to close bars and nightclubs during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Zambian Breweries Country Director, Jose Moran said that as a law-abiding corporate citizen, the company stood together with the authorities and the nation in the fight against the virus.

In a statement, Mr Moran said that Government had stopped people meeting together in public places, including bars and restaurants to avoid the spread of the pandemic and that licensed outlets were still allowed to consume alcohol but not and the premises.

“At Zambian Breweries there’s one thing we love as much as beer that’s bringing people together for a better world,” Mr Moran said.

“However, our world has changed. Now we all must step up and do our part, by staying apart. We must do what is right for our communities, beer-lovers can enjoy responsibly from home until COVID-19 is defeated.”

Mr Moran advised bar owners to consider incorporating takeaway services in their businesses to continue running during the COVID-19 outbreak and that there was need to fight and stop the virus for the sake of our families, country and the future.

He further disclosed that the brewing company, through its Budweiser brand, was sponsoring online parties to reduce the temptation of opening night clubs.

“The health and safety of our customers is top priority. It is for this reason that we have partnered with Zambian DJ Sébastien Dutch to host on-line parties on Saturdays for party lovers to club while at home,” he said.
