The roots of Surinaamse Brouwerij N.V. lie in the Dutch province of Zeeland, where the brothers Piet and Arthur Dumoleyn decided around 1950 to continue their brewery business in Suriname. Suriname, at the time Dutch territory, did not have its own brewery. The brewery was officially opened in October 1955 by His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard (later Prince of the Netherlands).​

At the end of December 1955 the company produced the first PARBO BEER. The first shareholder was Amstel Brouwerij N.V., which was acquired by Heineken N.V in 1968. The Surinamese beer was, right from the start, of excellent quality (Prix d’Excellence award in 1958 during the global beer competition in Gent, Belgium).​

The policy is aimed at achieving profitable and sustainable growth in order to strengthen the position of the company. In addition, Surinaamse Brouwerij N.V. strives for optimal returns for shareholders, continuous satisfaction of customers and consumers, optimal well-being of employees, corporate social responsibility and engagement.​

Quality has always, up to the date of today, played an important role in our corporate policy. Surinaamse Brouwerij N.V., for example, was one of the first breweries in South and North America to obtain both the ISO and HACCP certificates. Today, Surinaamse Brouwerij N.V.  has set itself the goal of producing and selling beer that meets international standards.
