Right from inception, SONA BREWERIES PLC has been committed to excellent and high environmental standards. In line with the desire to maintain good environment at all levels of operations, the Management of Sona breweries Plc has made it a policy that all staff involved in laboratory operations, production process, packaging process and other services should be properly educated about their responsibilities in maintaining the set environmental standards.
The construction work of Sona Breweries Plc started in 1980 on the present site KM 40, Lagos-Abeokuta Exp Way, Sango-Otta, Ogun state.
Actual production started in 1982 specifically in February, with the rolling out of bottles of Gold Lager Beer. The brewery started with an initial capacity of 500,000 hectoliters per annum and this was later expanded to 850,000 hectoliters.
