  4. Often times,the demand for beers just like tobacco is price inelastic and it’s always a good source for government revenue in form of excise duties.

  5. I can’t see the 50 to 30 percentage in the prices in your article. Lusakatimes, can you please employ someone that understands his/her job to write sensible articles??

  9. “According to information sent out to beer distributors in Lusaka by Zambian Breweries, prices for all beer brands have been adjusted upwards from around 50% to 30%”. You can do better than this ba LT.

  10. The most classic adage regarding trolling is, “Don’t feed the trolls.” Trolls seek out emotional responses and find provocation amusing, so replying to them or attempting to debate them will only make them troll more.

    Indeed there was a planned annual increase into our imported packs (mainly 340 Non-returnable bottles and 500ml cans) including brands as Stella Artois, Budweiser, Flying Fish and others. The price per case increases were approximately between 6% to 11% to mitigate the foreign exchange impact of the landed costs of these packs, imported from
    South Africa.
