SABMiller to Build Namibian Brewery

The world's second-largest brewer‚ SABMiller will begin construction of its planned 260‚000 hectoliter brewery in Namibia next month‚ the company said on Wednesday.  This will mean SABMiller‚ which has been importing beer into Namibia through Castle Brewing Namibia for more than 20 years‚ will now be able to brew and bottle beer in the country. Competition in Africa's beer market has slowly been growing‚ as liquor groups expand operations in emerging markets to offset the effects of declines in Europe‚ where tough economic conditions prevail.
