Anheuser-Busch InBev's Russian unit has confirmed that it has invested EUR100m in capacity improvements at its Perm brewery between 2000 and 2008.

Sun InBev Russia said earlier this week that the EUR100m (US$142.2m) injection has boosted annual production at its Perm facility to 3.5m hectolitres.

Going forward, Sun InBev said it intends to construct a new water treatment facility at the brewery, to help enhance its water management practices.

Sun InBev is Russia's second largest brewer in volume terms, behind Carlsberg's Baltic Beverages Holding. It has a network of ten breweries in the country, producing beer brands including Stella Artois, Brahma and Sibirskaya Korona.
