India, this Bud's for you
MUMBAI, India » Anheuser-Busch, the world's largest brewer, introduced an Indian-brewed Budweiser yesterday as part of the company's plan to tap into the country's booming economy, a top official said.
While India is one of the world's largest markets for spirits, it ranks near the bottom among beer guzzling nations.
But Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. sees great potential in the country.
"India has strong and consistent economic growth," said Stephen J. Burrows, chief executive of Anheuser-Busch Asia-Pacific operations. "It represents a major entry point for Anheuser-Busch."
Budweiser will initially be on sale only in southern and western India.
India's beer industry posted 20 percent annual growth for the past two years, up from 10 percent per year over the past decade. The growth has been fueled by India's growing middle class and its huge population of young people.
