Q6.)This case is about East African Breweries Limited (EABL), the Kenyan subsidiary of UK-based Diageo plc (Diageo), and its unique product targeted at low income consumers — Senator Keg. In Kenya, as in many African countries, the per capita consumption of alcohol was high, but most of it was illicitly brewed. With 46% of the people earning less than US$ 2 a day, the mainstream drinks priced at US$ 0.60 to 0.85 were unaffordable to them.

The locally brewed and homemade drinks were, however, not very hygienic and posed a health risk. To make matters worse, chemicals like methanol were often added to the brew. Often, they were fortified with toxic substances, which made the resulting drink unsafe. However, the high prices of commercially produced alcoholic beverages ensured that this kind of liquor brewed locally from finger millet malt (Busaa) and a corn-meal based drink (Chang'aa) continued to be popular with the people, as it was available at around one tenth of the price of commercial beer.
