Manufacturing Principles

As the region’s largest brewery, we bring safe, great-tasting, quality brews to consumers at a rate of 100,000 servings per day. Our drinks offer hydration, refreshment, and moments of pleasure for people around the world.

At Carib Brewery, we are committed to making sure all our products meet the highest standards for safety and quality. This is why we only choose the finest ingredients and maintain a perfectly controlled brewing process.

Product Quality/Quality Assurance

At Carib Brewery we ensure consistent safety and quality through strong governance and compliance to applicable regulations and standards. We manufacture our products following strict policies, requirements and specifications provided through an integrated quality management programme that measures all of our operations. This programme promotes the highest standards in product safety and quality, occupational safety, and health and environmental standards across all three Carib breweries.

All our products are tested in state-of-the-art laboratories using modern methods and appropriate technologies against stringent requirements. We measure key product and package quality attributes by focusing on ingredients and materials, as well as samples collected from the trade. We monitor compliance with our standards in manufacturing and distribution of the Carib Brewery Company products to ensure those products meet Company requirements and consumer expectations in the marketplace.

To create and maintain safety and quality, we stay current with new regulations, industry best practices and marketplace conditions, and engage with standard setting and industry organisations. We consistently reassess the relevance of, and continually improve and refine, our requirements and standards throughout the entire supply chain.

We approach the safety and quality of our products as a primary strategic objective with endorsement from the Carib Brewery leadership. Our management programme uses consistent metrics to monitor performance, employs activities to identify and mitigate risks and uses tools to drive improvement.

Ensuring the safety and quality of our products has always been at the core of our business and is directly linked to the success of Carib Brewery.

Environmental, Health and Safety

As the region’s leading Brewery Company, Carib is committed to the development of local policies and procedures that minimise the impact on natural resources, and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for the communities in which we operate.

That commitment is reflected in our exceptional safety record, and the fact that all of Carib Brewery’s operations are ISO 14001 certified for Environmental Management Systems.

Safety and Health

The health and safety of our employees is our primary focus at Carib Breweey. We continue to reinforce a safety-first culture in our production teams across the region, and it is paying dividends. Our breweries have achieved significant milestones in hours worked without a lost time injury and our production teams have been nationally recognised for years of working safely.

In 2013, Carib Brewery achieved certification in OHSAS 18001 for our occupational and health management systems.

Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

Detailed site-specific plans are developed in consultation with communities early in the project planning stage and are formulated in accordance with established environmental codes of practice. Plans address soil, vegetation and wildlife issues, air quality, and water and energy conservation. The objective of the EMS is to identify and mitigate impacts during planning and operation, and to leave a productive, self-sustaining and a hazard-free environment.
