Brewer defends S Africa share

SABMiller aims to protect its 90 per cent market share in South Africa from rival Heineken, the head of the brewer's South African unit said yesterday. The world’s second-largest brewer was also confident it had a solid case against South African charges of violating anti-competition laws, managing director Norman Adami said. London and Johannesburg-listed SABMiller is facing a challenge from Heineken, which is trying boost its presence in Africa’s largest economy.
