Mongozo B.V.



Mongozo means ‘cheers’ in the native language of Henrique Kabia, one of the founders of Mongozo beer. It is the language of the Chokwe people in Angola, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Henrique Kabia’s distant great-grandmother maded palm beer insted of palm wine.

In 1993, he arrived in the Netherlands as a refugee. He brought the recipe for a new exotic beer range. In 1998, Henrique Kabia and Jan Fleurkens decided to join forces and market palm nut beer. In 2001 Mongozo Banana was launched, followed by Mongozo Quinua in 2003. Mongozo Coconut was launched in the spring of 2005, followed by Mongozo Mango in 2008.

As an addition to the range of exotic beers it has on offer, Mongozo introduced a world first in 2010: Mongozo Premium Pilsner. This lager combines three unique elements - Fairtrade, organic and gluten-free – all in one bottle..
