Be conscious of Laboratory budget and control of waste
SBL operates in a competitive environment and in a vast geography. The main player in the beer industry is Tanzania Breweries Ltd.

As a result of the cessation of the agreement between TBL and EABL, there is heightened competitive activity in that market.
