InBev India International and joint-venture partner RK Jaipuria Group are to build a new manufacturing facility in Andra Pradesh, the country's largest beer drinking region.

"In Andhra Pradesh, we are looking at a Greenfield brewery site, [and] we are in different stages of obtaining government clearances," Raja Mukherji, chief executive officer of InBev India, told just-drinks today (24 September), confirming statements reported in the local media.

InBev has a 49% stake in its venture with New Delhi-based RK Jaipuria Group.

Mukherji declined to give further details of the new brewery, but added that the group was planning to launch Tennents, to be its first locally-manufactured beer, in north India.

The Belgium-based brewer has two contract brewers in the country, Regent breweries in Madya Pradesh and Dasappa & Sons in Bangalore, which produce around 1.9m cases annually.

InBev's recent takeover deal for Anhueser-Busch may increase its presence further in India. Anheuser already has a wholly-owned subsidiary in the country that produces and sells Budweiser, as well as a local brand Armstrong.

Currently, InBev also sells imported Stella Artois, Beck's, Hoegaarden and Leffe in 330 and 500ml cans.
