Burundi drink prices up

BUJUMBURA, BURUNDI - Brarudi S.A. which is partly owned by Heineken NV has announced an increase in the price of all drinks by 50 Burundi Francs (BIF) (USD 0.04).

This was revealed in a press release in Bujumbura last week. According to the press release, this increasing is due to a rise in production's costs.

The company has, nevertheless, promised to invest 46 billion BIF (USD 10.9million) in 2012 in order to guarantee the availability of its products to the Burundian consumers.

The recommended retail price of a 72 Cl bottle of Primus has gone up from 950 BIF (USD 0.73) to 1000 BIF (USD 0.77), Amstel 65 Cl is now 1,250 BIF (USD 0.97) from 1,200 BIF (USD 0.93), Amstel 33 Cl now costs 600 BIF (USD 0.46) instead of 550 BIF (USD 0.42), Amstel Bock is 850 BIF (USD 0.65) instead of 800 BIF (USD 0.62).

Draught Primus and Amstel will now be 500 BIF (USD 0.38) and 1000 BIF (USD 0.77) respectively. and all Carbonated soft drinks now cost 500 BIF (USD 0.38), up from 450 BIF (USD 0.34). This price will be the same all over the country.

The justification in the increase is due to a significant increase the costs of malt, electricity, water and the depreciation of the Burundian Francs against the Euro. The annual inflation rate of 15 % since the beginning of the year has also played a large part in this decision.
