Amsterdam, 21 April 2021 – Heineken N.V. (EURONEXT: HEIA; OTCQX: HEINY) publishes its trading update today for the first quarter of 2021.
- Beer volume stable organically
- Heineken® volume growth accelerated +12.1%
- Premium volume outperformed growing in the low-teens
- Deployment of EverGreen growth strategy on track
Dolf van den Brink, Chairman of the Executive Board / CEO, commented:
“We had a solid start to the year, despite facing severe restrictions across many markets and the closure of the on-trade in Europe due to the pandemic. Overall beer volume was in line with last year, with strong growth in Africa, Middle East & Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific and modest growth in the Americas. The Heineken® brand had a stellar performance, up 12.1%, with double-digit growth in more than 40 countries. I am proud of our employees’ relentless resilience and agility in responding to the ongoing volatility.
We are making great strides in the deployment of our EverGreen growth strategy on all fronts. Most recently, we announced our ambition to become carbon neutral by 2040.”
