Current business profile
El Salvador domestic lager volumes saw double digit volume growth during 2012, driven by the more affordable bulk pack of our flagship mainstream brand, Pilsener. Our local premium brand, Suprema, also saw healthy volume growth of 30%, which together with the repositioning of Golden Light in the upper mainstream segment, significantly improved revenue mix. As a consequence, our alcohol market share increased to 32%. Soft drinks volumes grew by 7%, mainly due to the success of multiserve packs. In January 2012 we expanded into the non-alcoholic malt category with our brand Actimalta.
