Mr. Eric Ametefe, the Best Graduating Student of the Food Process Engineering department of the University of Ghana has received his prize package from Accra Brewery Limited (ABL) at the recently held University of Ghana Academic Excellence Awards.

The prize to Eric stems from ABL’s partnership agreement with the Faculty of Engineering, University of Ghana, signed in 2007 comprising industrial internships for level three hundred students of the faculty, opportunity for National Service and an award for the best graduating student within an academic year.

Presenting the prize package, of five thousand Ghana cedis and a laptop, Vincent Oliver, ABL’s Technical Director, emphasized that, as a subsidiary of SABMiller Plc, ABL remains committed to empowering individuals and organizations in their operational areas to excel in their respective undertakings and thus help in improving the livelihoods of the wider society.

He said “over the past nine years more than five Hundred (500) students including the company’s Quality Control Manager, have benefited from an 8-week internship programme, organized to equip level 300 students with first-hand practical knowledge and skills of their classroom study since the partnership.  This is part of our contribution to creating a thriving world by accelerating growth and social development through investments, especially in tertiary education as well as improving the learning skills of the nation’s human resource.’’

In 2013, Accra Brewery brought on board two other tertiary institutions by signing a Memorandum Of Understanding with Takoradi Polytechnic and the University of Mines and Technology, Tarkwa, to promote economic growth and innovation across the value chain by providing the students with first-hand practical knowledge and skills for the job market as they complete their studies and compete with students all over the world.
