A-B InBev said the job cuts had been "minimised"

Anheuser-Busch InBev has confirmed that around 30 employees have been affected by a reorganisation of its US business services unit. 

The brewer said that the reorganisation had “displaced a small number of workers” in St Louis, and that job cuts had been “minimised”. A spokesperson told just-drinks that “fewer than 30 positions were impacted”.

Part of the changes involve some of the group's business service functions being shifted to Argentina, the company said. 

In a seperate statement, Jim Brickey, A-B's VP of people, said: "These reductions were minimised as much as possible by using unfilled positions.”

He added: “These are always difficult decisions, but are important in evolving our business and improving our competitiveness.”
