SABMiller was one of the world's leading brewers, with its roots deeply planted in South Africa's history. It originated from the South African Breweries (founded in 1895) which expanded globally over the decades. However, in 2016, SABMiller was acquired by Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), the world's largest beer producer, in one of the biggest corporate mergers in history.

After the merger, AB InBev continued SABMiller's operations in South Africa, maintaining the strong presence of local brands such as Castle Lager, Hansa Pilsener, and Carling Black Label, among others. SAB ABInbev, as it could be referred to post-merger in South Africa, became a critical player in the country's beverage industry, representing a significant portion of the local alcohol market and continuing to contribute to the national and regional economies through its extensive operations.

The company operates breweries across South Africa, integrating deeply with local supply chains and agricultural sectors, as it sources a lot of its raw materials like barley, hops, and maize from local farmers. This integration is part of its broader commitment to sustainable development and fostering economic growth within the regions it operates.

SAB ABInBev's operations in South Africa are not just limited to the production and distribution of alcoholic beverages. The company is also involved in various corporate social responsibility initiatives aimed at addressing societal issues such as alcohol abuse, water stewardship, and responsible drinking campaigns. Furthermore, it engages in programs designed to support local entrepreneurship and enterprise development, especially among the youth and disadvantaged communities.

In line with global trends and AB InBev’s commitments, the South African arm has been focusing on innovation with the introduction of low- and no-alcohol products to cater to a growing market of health-conscious consumers. It has also been proactive in environmental sustainability, working to reduce carbon emissions, improve water efficiency, and transition to renewable energy sources in its operations.


Although there has been plenty of evidence to suggest the job market in South Africa is stretched thin. Large companies such as South African Breweries (SAB) are still availing vacancies and here is how you can apply.
