Global stories for a Better World

Global stories for a Better World

We were able to provide a great multi-angle insight on our company with a set of interesting articles on AB InBev that has been published in Belgian financial newspapers De Tijd and L’Echo. We believe these stories are worth to be further spread.

Ingredient and Nutrition Info on our Beers as of 2016

Awareness Week on Alcohol Related Harm 2015 is taking place this week and it’s a good time to share our progress on implementing our commitment on consumer information. Under this commitment, we will provide consumers in Europe with full ingredient and nutritional values (the ‘Big 7’: energy values, fat, saturated fats, carbohydrates, sugars, proteins and salt) on our beers; on label and online.

Industry Joining Forces on Global Beer Responsibility Day

Industry Joining Forces on Global Beer Responsibility Day

On September 18th, Global Beer Responsibility Day will be organized as a joint beer industry initiative for the first time in a number of markets worldwide. During this day we want to emphasize our continuous efforts to remind consumers to enjoy our beers in a responsible way.  This event originally started as an initiative by AB InBev back in 2010 and since then we’ve seen similar efforts from other alcohol producers, which we of course welcome as a very positive development.

Being part of a wider barley growers network: a mutual benefit

Being part of a wider barley growers network: a mutual benefit

Barley is one of the main ingredients of beer and therefore its availability and quality are crucial to our company’s future and success. However, with the rise of crop issues due to increasingly erratic climate patterns, farmers are moving away from malting barley in favour of crops with simpler management and more predictable revenues. In order to be able to keep brewing great beers in future, it is essential that malting barley remains a relevant and attractive crop to the best growers in the world.

“Intermodal Transportation”: The Route To a Sustainable Future

“Intermodal Transportation”: The Route To a Sustainable Future

“Green logistics” – perhaps more appropriately called “greener logistics” – has become a catchword in the transportation industry and a major focus of our company. In 2014, we became the first in the brewing industry to set out a global commitment on this topic, aiming for a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in our logistics operations by 15% per hectolitre sold. Striving for continuous improvement to deliver this target requires innovation and strong partnerships. In this blog post, I will introduce you to some of our intermodal transportation* projects, which focus exactly on these areas. 

With the Water We Save, We Help the People Who Need It Most

With the Water We Save, We Help the People Who Need It Most

Water, the main ingredient to brew our beers, is a scarce resource and as you might have been reading in earlier blogs, we’re proud to be industry leader with a water usage ratio of 3,2 liter per liter of beer brewed. We take our responsibility to use this vital resource to mankind wisely, but also want to move beyond and share part of the water we save with the people who need it most.
