Guinness To Stop Sale Of Johnnie Walker, Baileys And Other Products

Guinness Nigeria Plc has announced plans to stop the importation and sale of Johnnie Walker, Baileys, and other Diageo products by April 2024, a move that will wipe off six percent of the Nigerian brewer’s total revenues.

This was gathered in a statement released on Thursday to the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX).

Guinness Nigeria said it will no longer trade in the products because Diageo Plc plans to establish a new, wholly owned spirits-focused business in the Nigerian and African markets.

Guinness Nigeria will be better positioned to focus on its core business and its strength in the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of non-alcoholic drinks, beer, RTDs and its locally produced spirits,” the statement reads.

This may however impact the company’s revenue, as the sale of Johnnie Walker, Baileys and Singleton added N14 billion to Guinness Nigeria’s total revenue in the financial year ended June 30, 2023.
