Production at two of InBev's main plants in Belgium was brought to a halt after strike action took place at the facilities last week.

The company said last Friday (25 April) that a performance-related variable salary scheme scheme will be introduced to 180 sales staff as a "priority", despite strikes at the sites in Leuven and Jupille.

InBev was notified by the workers' unions of strike intentions, but the action was not meant to begin until 30 April. However, last week, demonstrating staff set up blockades at the main Stella Artois plants preventing workers entering the plant for the shift changes.

The new pay scheme will reportedly "increase business volume," said InBev.
