Holsten now brewed for South Africa.

Holsten-Brauerei AG reached an agreement with The Namibia Breweries Ltd. (NBL) in Windhoek, Namibia, to produce Holsten Premium under license.

According to Holsten, NBL has been introducing the brew in Windhoek as well as in larger markets in South Africa, including Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

Eckhard Koll, the Holsten director responsible for foreign markets, stressed the common interest of the two companies in "high quality standards and similar corporate philosophies" when making the announcement.

Namibia follows Nigeria as the second African country brewing beer under a licensing agreement for Holsten. Holsten also has arrangements with breweries in Great Britain, Hungary and China. Last year, sales for Holsten beer brewed under contract exceeded 23.7 million gallons.
