A local alcoholic beverages manufacturing firm has stepped up plans to meet the growing local demand for quality locally manufactured spirits.

Thika-based Africa Spirits Limited has disclosed that enhanced enforcement action by the Government against illicit and contraband alcoholic drinks has opened up a vast market for local manufacturers.

Brand Portfolio Manager Ascah Ogara says local consumers have embraced locally manufactured products and are increasingly demanding flavoured brands.

It is estimated that the alcohol industry contributes over 100 billion in taxes to the exchequer.
