The Belgian-Brazilian brewing group AB InBev is investing more than 115 million pounds sterling (133 million euros) in two of its breweries in the United Kingdom. Their capacity will be increased and 55 people will be hired, the group’s British subsidiary, Budweiser Brewing Group UK&I said on Friday.
The investment concerns breweries located in Magor (South Wales) and Samlesbury (Lancashire), which already employ more than a thousand people. After the expansion, the two breweries will be able to produce and package a total of 3.6 million hectoliters of additional beers per year.
