BanQu and AB InBev Are Revolutionizing Africa’s Cassava Industry

AB InBev subsidiary Zambian Breweries is using BanQu’s technology to create transaction records that help breweries and cassava farmers streamline their businesses.

Zambian Breweries, a subsidiary of AB InBev, developed a beer that uses cassava instead of barley.
