SABMiller has confirmed closure of its sale of a juice business in Latin America.

The brewer, which inherited Productora de Jugos when it acquired Colombian brewer Bavaria in 2005, said yesterday (5 June) that the divestment of the unit, to Postobon in Colombia, was completed at the end of May.

SABMiller began the sale process to Postobon, for US$55.3m, in June last year. The move was made to ensure that the company protected its beer monopoly in Colombia.

"It's our strategy to divest out of those additional businesses and focus on our more important businesses, which in (Colombia) are beer, malt drinks and waters," a spokesperson for SABMiller said at the time.
