GUINNESS Ghana Breweries Limited, the nation's most celebrated business has unveiled a stylish and contemporary new-look bottle for its leading Lager brand, Star.

STAR beer, the premium quality Lager brand, tagged, "The Nation's Favourite Beer" now comes in a modern and exciting new bottle embossed with stars. The new packaging also comes with a circular neck label.

“As a power brand, Star needs to review its image periodically to remain relevant to its core consumers and also remain competitive in the market.

This is to ensure that consumer experience with the brand continues to be that of fun and the celebration of a brighter lifestyle,” GGBL said.

At a fun-packed launch event held at the Aviation Social Centre in Accra, consumers from all walks of life joined GGBL to celebrate the re-birth of "The Nation's Favourite Beer".

Men and women toiled tirelessly on that day to ensure that the first bottle hit the market with a big bang!"

He paid glowing tribute to Ghanaian consumers and said: "We have delighted consumers with our innovations, fulfilling every consumer need, and not stopping at that, but continuing to research consumer motivations. So much has changed, yet we continue to delight Ghanaian consumers as we did five decades ago".

Launching the new bottle, Mrs. Shirley Shooter, Head of Marketing at GGBL, said, "Your favourite Star is now coming to you in a modern and exciting new bottle, which is embossed with Stars with a circular neck label and a new crown cork".
