AB InBev conducting major layoffs in Israel

This move comes as the company aims to streamline its operations, leading to the expected departure of approximately one-third of its employees in the country. Approximately 40 employees are expected to be affected by this decision


Global beverage company, AB InBev is reportedly planning to lay off several employees in Israel, as disclosed by sources at Calcalist. While the company has not released precise figures, it is estimated that around 40 employees may be affected by the workforce reduction. Nevertheless, it has been clarified that numerous other employees will continue to work at AB InBev’s branches in Israel.

AB InBev, renowned as the world’s leading brewer with its European headquarters situated in Belgium, boasts ownership of an extensive portfolio of over 500 beer brands and employs approximately 167,000 people across nearly 50 countries worldwide. In 2018, the company acquired WeissBeerger, an Israeli company, and transformed it into a local research and development center. While AB InBev has been making strides in various technological branches in recent years, it has now opted to implement a structural change in one of its development centers located in Israel. 

The company spokesperson explained that AB InBev consistently updates its organisational structures to stay responsive to the requirements of small and medium-sized retailers and partners worldwide. As part of this ongoing evolution, they are centralising their B2B technology support structure to accelerate the development of innovative solutions that enable businesses to flourish. It was also highlighted that AB InBev continues to play an active role in the Israel tech ecosystem, with ongoing operations focused on cyber security, data, and innovation, all centered in Tel Aviv.
