InBev Heads to India in Search of Growth

Belgian beer behemoth InBev is the latest brewery to make a move into India.

InBev, which brews and markets Stella Artois, Becks and other brands, has cut a deal with RKJ Group in Delhi. RJK is India's leading Pepsi bottler and distributor.

RKJ will hold 51 percent of the stock in the new venture, but InBev retains to increase its stake at a later date. InBev products are expected to hit the Indian market in 2008.
