The Chilean brewer Compania Cervecerias Unidas (CCU) has seen its fourth quarter net profit leap 59% compared to last year to 18.117 billion pesos (US$30.5m), as the inclusion of Heineken in its portfolio paid off.

Revenues grew 13.5% to 118.006 billion pesos. The company cited strong beer sales in Argentina and Chile, as well as increased wine and soft drinks sales for the growth.

In a statement CEO Patricio Jottar said: "In the Chile beer segment volumes grew 7.3% and operating income 70.4 percent due to the incorporation of Heineken to our portfolio...the appreciation of the Chilean peso, and the economic reactivation.

Soft drinks, mineral waters and nectars also increased volume by 7.9%.
