Cargills (Ceylon) has agreed a deal with Carlton United Brewers (CUB) to brew and distribute Foster's in Sri Lanka. 

In a filing yesterday (4 March), the Colombo-based group said that it has entered into an agreement with the SABMiller subsidiary to produce the lager under licence for sale and distribution in Sri Lanka. Cargills (Ceylon), which is listed on the Colombo Stock Exchange, has interests in beverages, food and retail. 

SABMiller completed its acquisition of Foster's Group, of which CUB is a part, in December 2011.
