Product Launch

14 September 2006

Ref 41/2006


London and Johannesburg, 14 September 2006. SABMiller plc, one of the world's
leading brewers, announces the introduction of its premium Peroni Nastro Azzurro
brand into South America for the first time. The brand will be launched in
Colombia becoming the company's first foreign imported beer into the region.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro will initially be made available in high-end on-trade
premises in Bogota and Medellin, with seasonal availability in Cartagena. The
launch will be supported by an integrated marketing campaign including above and
below the line activity embodying Peroni Nastro Azzurro's unique Italian style.

This introduction continues SABMiller's global expansion of Peroni Nastro
Azzurro and will mean the brand is now represented in appropriate outlets in all
SABMiller regional markets. It also highlights the move by Bavaria, a subsidiary
of SABMiller plc, to develop the premium segment of the beer market in Colombia
alongside existing local brand Club Colombia - driving not only growth in mix,
but volume growth in the key value end of the beer category.

Buoyant trading conditions were experienced across the region during the past
quarter with sales increasing 7.5% against the comparable period last year. This
growth was underpinned by improving economic conditions, increased brand and
trade investments as well as launches of packaging innovations.

Karl Lippert, president of Bavaria, commented: 'The introduction of Peroni
Nastro Azzurro to Colombia not only bolsters our presence in the premium segment
along with Club Colombia, but aims to develop the category itself in the
country. The growing sophistication of our consumers, and our research, point to
strong interest in a stylish Italian brand, like Peroni. This launch is an
important step for us as we develop our portfolio of brands to satisfy the needs
of all Colombian beer consumers.'

SABMiller International Brand Director for Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Chris Taylor,
said: 'Peroni Nastro Azzurro is now in five continents around the world with
high consumer awareness, growing demand and strong performances in all of its
markets. It's a simple concept - Italian style in a bottle - and one which we
firmly believe will make Peroni Nastro Azzurro into the premier choice for
consumers around the world.'

Peroni Nastro Azzurro is part of SABMiller's global premium brand portfolio
which also includes Pilsner Urquell and Miller Genuine Draft. Brewed in Italy
for over forty years, Peroni Nastro Azzurro will be imported to Colombia from
SABMiller's brewery in Bari, in southern Italy.
