|Tusker Lager, Tusker Malt Lager, Pilsner and White Cap Lager were each awarded Gold at the highly respected international beer awards conducted by the "Monde Selection International Institute for Quality Selection."
This is the official institution established in 1961, by the Belgium Government for universally maintaining high standards of beverages and foods produced for human consumption. Each year applying criteria laid down by the European Union, and after exhaustive laboratory tests and analyses by experts, Monde Selection awards three categories of medals, Gold, Silver and Bronze.
Kenya Breweries Managing Director, James Musyoki is thrilled with this latest round of success given the Monde Selection is open to breweries around the world.
