The Foreign and Trade Minister EP Chet Green reported to the Cabinet of Antigua this week that the Carib Beer manufacturer has submitted requests for further concessions.
It also sought the permission to re-use their bottles, the Carib Beer Brewery asserts, will reduce the waste which other beers incur.
They seek some consideration for their environmentally sensitive policy that will reduce the need to use landfill space.
Carib Brewery, headquartered in Trinidad and Tobago and one of the leading breweries in the Caribbean, is planning to build a local production on the island.
Carib operates already three breweries in the Caribbean, namely in Trinidad and Tobago (1950), St. Kitts and Nevis (1997) and in Grenada (2002).
In addition Ansa McAl bought in 2016 Florida Beer Co. (former Indian River Brewing Co.) from Cape Canaveral, Florida, one of the largest breweries in Florida, which serves not only the Caribbean diaspora in the United States but also neighboring theme parks in Orlando, Florida but also in California with licensed brands like Simpon’s Duff Beer, or Harry Potter beer.
When completed Carib will be brewing and filling plant for about 60,000 cases of beers, malts, juices and soft drinks for local consumption and export.
Carib has partnerships with international companies such as Heineken International B.V., Diageo, Molson Coors and Ginseng UpCorporation. As a result Heineken, Guinness Stout, Coors Light, Ginseng Up and Smirnoff Ice are part of Carib’s production portfolio. However, the types and brands of beverages which will be produced at the new brewery are still not decided.
