SABMiller has acquired Russian brewer LLC Vladpivo for an undisclosed sum.

Vladpivo is the largest brewer in the Russian far east Primorie region, which represents 7.6% of the Russian beer market and is projected to grow faster than the total Russian beer market.

The acquisition would accelerate SABMiller's growth in the region and increase the geographic concentration of its 'worthmore' portfolio, said James Wilson, managing director of SABMiller RUS.
