Johannesburg - Anheuser-Busch (AB) InBev yesterday announced that it had completed its more than $100 billion (R1.4 trillion) acquisition of rival SABMiller.
With the merger completed, InBev also announced the completion of Peroni, Grolsch and Meantime brands disposal.
It is estimated that the combined company will have $55bn in annual sales and a 28 percent global market share.
“We will achieve more together than each of us could separately,” said AB InBev’s chief executive, Carlos Brito.
It has been reported that Japanese brewer Asahi will buy Peroni and Grolsch in the UK and Europe, as well as London’s Meantime.
