SABMiller's LatAm base has been in Colombia since 2005

SABMiller has confirmed it will move its Latin American regional headquarters from Colombia to Miami.

The move will involve about 30 staff, a SABMiller spokesperson revealed to just-drinks. No reason for the move has yet been given.

SABMiller based its South American regional operations in Bogotá after it acquired Grupo Empresarial Bavaria, a Colombian brewer, in 2005.

The US$7.8bn deal made SABMiller one of the region's leading brewers.
