China Resources Snow Breweries has begun the construction of its production facility in Paoshan Industrial Zone in the outskirts of Shanghai.

The production base, costing RMB650m (US$95m), will cover an area of 190,000 square metres and will allow production of 400m litres annually once completed.

This will make it the biggest beer production plant in Shanghai, the company said in a statement.

Recent sales figures showed that Snow, which is part-owned by SABMiller, has overtaken Budweiser to become the world's largest beer brand by volume.

The facility is designed to be more economical and conserve around 30% of energy, with the help of the local Dongkou thermal plant.

The ground breaking ceremony was attended by Chinese Communist Party Shanghai Paoshan party secretary Comrade Lu Minyuan, as well as Paoshan regional people's government deputy district head Comrade Zhu Yongquan.

Snow Breweries has around 60 subsidiaries nationwide.


Sectors: Beer & cider

Companies: SABMiller
