Ambev eventually aims to use only renewable energy sources to supply its operations in Brazil.
Latin America’s largest brewer is to build a solar plant to supply clean power to its distribution centres.
The facility in Brazil’s Minas Gerais region will power all of Ambev’s sites in the area and marks a step towards the firm’s plans to eventually use only renewable energy sources to supply its operations in the country.
An investment of $1.8 million (£1.44m) will be provided by partner Alexandria to build the 5,340-panel solar plant in Uberlandia, in return for 75% of the power generated over the next decade.
Ambev is currently looking for partners and alternative sources of energy in other Brazilian states.
