I hope to show others that they shouldn’t give up on Lebanon

This FT article and interview with Philippe Jabre has focussed on his investment in Brasserie Almaza, as well as his perspective on Lebanon’s future.

“This is not Lebanon’s first crisis, and it’s not even its worst. I hope to show others that they shouldn’t give up on Lebanon, that despite the difficulties, we should keep investing in our country,” he said. In 2021, Philippe Jabre acquired majority ownership of Almaza, making him the third generation owner and manager of the Brasserie Almaza that was created by his grandfather, Michel Jabre, 90 years ago.

Today, business at the brewery is more stable than a year ago, and exports currently make up a quarter of its production, a number that Philippe Jabre hopes will reach 40 per cent soon.
