Strong growth in the UK market helped SAB Miller grow organic lager volumes 3% in the third quarter on last year.

Group revenue for the period to 31 December grew by 6% on an organic constant currency basis for SAB, whose brands include Peroni and Pilsner Urquell.

In Europe as a whole, lager volumes werein line with last year.

"The region's volume performance benefited from continuing strong growth in the United Kingdom as well as significantly higher volumes in the Ukraine where improving economic conditions along with recently introduced premium brands boosted growth," it said.

"We have benefited from lower costs of certain raw materials whilst continuing selectively to increase investment in brands and operations. The group's financial performance in the quarter was in line with our expectations."
