AB InBev has confirmed it intends to explore the sale of a number of SABMiller’s premium brands, including Peroni, Grolsch and Meantime.

It follows agreement last month​ on the £71bn acquisition of SABMiller by ABInBev.

The group said the approach underlined its commitment to “promptly and proactively address potential regulatory considerations”.

Meantime has only been under the control of SABMiller since May.

Alan Clark, chief executive of SABMiller, said: “Under SABMiller’s stewardship, Peroni and Grolsch have become world-renowned premium beer brands. Meantime has been a welcome addition to SABMiller and has a growing and loyal fan base.

"These beers are loved by consumers and we are very proud of them. Until the change of control we will continue to invest in growing these great beers and supporting our talented people who brew, sell and manage them.”
