Established in 1864 by the Heineken family, HEINEKEN has a long and proud history and heritage as an independent global brewer. We brew quality beers, build award-winning brands and are committed to enthusing consumers everywhere.
Four key factors make us unique:
HeinekenÂ® was the first and remains the only truly global beer brand, enjoyed in 178 countries around the world
We have a unique, worldwide footprint with operations in over 70 countries, which means we have a broader reach for our brands than any other brewer
We have an internationally diverse, dynamic, committed and entrepreneurial team of over 85,000 employees
The passion of the Heineken family remains as strong today as it was in 1864 when we first started brewing beer.
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.
