South Pacific Brewery (SPB)

Brewery Marks 900 days Without Accident

SPB described it as a “more than a desirable event”, which objectively demonstrates their commitment to a safe work environment.

This achievement is the result of the constant drive to adopt best practices and standards to align the company to the most updated safety processes and principles.

SPB’s continuous attention to safety was confirmed by the launching of their revamped Life Saving Commitments in April.

“Safety is our first priority as we want all our staff to go home to their families safely, every day,” said Port Moresby Brewery manager, Coen Oreel.

New brewery chairman

He was elected by a majority vote at the 21 April board of directors meeting held in Port Moresby.

Joyce joined the company as marketing manager in 1995 and was later promoted to managing director in 2007, a position he held right up until his retirement in September 2019. Subsequent to his retirement, he was nominated onto the board as a director; a position he has held until his elevation to chairman.

He succeeds the late Sir Joseph Tauvasa, who passed away in January this year.
