Founded in South Africa in 1895, SABMiller has grown to become
one of the world’s largest and most respected brewing companies.
With operations in over 80 countries, we have more beer brands in
the world’s top 50 than any other brewer and we rank among the top
three brewers in more than 30 countries.
SABMiller manufactures and markets over 200 beer brands. These
include international names such as Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Pilsner
Urquell, Miller Genuine Draft and Grolsch, as well as leading local
brands such as Aguila (Colombia), Castle (South Africa), Miller
Lite (USA), Snow (China), Victoria Bitter (Australia) and Tyskie
(Poland). We are passionate about brewing and have become a
global leader by doing business locally, producing high quality
products as efficiently and sustainably as possible across a mix of
developed and developing markets.
Informed by deep local market insights, we invest in building
and nurturing local beer brands which earn the long-term support
and affection of our customers and consumers. At SABMiller we
understand and celebrate the inherently local qualities of the beer
industry, nurturing and developing brands that address the specific
tastes of consumers which are often unique to their location,
reflecting their heritage, nationality or cultural identity. Our
local approach to brand management does not preclude a global
approach to generating the efficiencies necessary to invest for
growth and local competitive advantage. We routinely test, update
and reapply global standards and best practice across a range of
disciplines, from technical standards and distribution, to
marketing, sales, finance and people management.
SABMiller’s history is one of exceptional growth and returns to
shareholders. With our global footprint of over 70,000 employees,
strong portfolio of brands and spread of operations across
developed and developing markets, SABMiller is well placed to
continually improve on this growth. In the year ended 31 March 2013
