The new facility will have a capacity of 3.5 million hectoliters annually, producing Kaiser, Kaiser Radler, Sun Premium, Bavaria, Heineken and Desperados.

The move is part of the company’s commitment to expand Brazilian beer production from its current 19 million hectoliters to nearly 25 million hectoliters by 2018. The company allocated USD 40 million (BRL 150 million) for a high-tech production line in its Jacarei line last month to boost its capacity by 800,000 hectoliters, and the Ponta Grossa brewery will be subject to an expansion that will double its size and expand its capacity by 1.4 million hectoliters annually.
