Heineken Vietnam Brewery Company inaugurated its brewery in Ba Ria- Vung Tau. This is Southeast Asia's largest brewery, which uses 100 per cent renewable energy.

Alexander Koch, CEO of Heineken Vietnam Brewery Co said in early 2020, the People's Committee of Ba Ria- Vung Tau province approved increasing the investment capital by VND1.65 trillion, bringing total capital to VND9.15 trillion (more than US$381 million).

In 2017, the brewery was acquired by Heineken Vietnam from Carlsberg, with a capacity of 30 million litres per year. Now the factory has increased its capacity 36 times compared to before, to 1.1 billion litres per year.

The Heineken Brewery Project has a total area of ​​40 hectares, operated with a high degree of automation, with innovative products being produced and introduced to the market. The brewery is on track to become one of the greenest and most sustainable breweries in the region. Currently, the factory is creating jobs for more than 200 local workers.

More importantly, the factory is implementing clean energy, saving water and green development. This is a specific effort of Heineken to accompany Viet Nam, making positive strides in response to climate change.

Nguyen Van Tho, Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee, acknowledged the achievements and great efforts and contributions that Heineken has achieved in the past six years in Ba Ria - Vung Tau.

He said: “It not only provides the best quality products and services, but also actively contributes to economic development, job creation and social security of the province.” — VNS
