AmBev, The Dream Project (A): A Brazilian-Based Multinational Beverage Company with Global Scale
AmBev, the merger of the two largest Brazilian beverage companies (Brahma and Antarctica) wants to become a strong South American multinational, able to compete with the main global players in this sector. AmBev creation process raised an important polemic. Competitors said AmBev would have a monopolistic power (controls about 70% of the Brazilian beer market).
