Heineken, established in 1864 by the Heineken family, has a long and proud history and heritage as an independent global brewer. Heineken brews quality beers, builds award-winning brands and are committed to enthusing consumers everywhere. 


Four key factors makes Heineken unique:


  • Heineken® was the first and remains the only truly global beer brand, enjoyed in 178 countries around the world;

  • They have an international diverse, dynamic, committed and entrepreneurial team of over 85,000 employees;

Today, HEINEKEN is the number one brewer in Europe and the number three brewer by volume in the world. With recent acquisitions in Africa, India, Asia and Latin America, we are continuing to increase our presence within emerging markets, which will contribute to our ongoing growth. Next to global brands like Heineken, Amstel and Sol, the group brews and sells more than 170 international premium, regional, local and specialty beers and ciders.
