The company is owned by its parent company Anheuser-Busch InBev.

What’s the history behind the company?

AmBev was founded on 1 July 1999 through a merger between Brahma and Antarctica, two Brazilian brewing companies. Since then, the company has continued to grow significantly, by gaining exclusive bottling and distribution rights for Pepsi in Brazil (October 2000), and adding the production, sale and distribution of Gatorade to its repertoire(January 2002).
The merger between Brahma and Antarctica facilitated the company’s expansion into additional South American territories including Argentina, Paraguay and Venezuela. Continuing its expansion, it soon added Bolivia and Uruguay to its markets, with subsequent acquisitions in the Central American countries: Peru, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.
In 2005, the company also began to target Canada’s beer market, and in 2012, brought its operations to the Caribbean through a strategic partnership with E. León Jimenes.

Trusted trading Platform is the most trusted trading platform I ever experienced. Even without taking any demo,I have started funding and it’s going well. It is a very easy platform for the beginners and can have better trading experience by using this


great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
