The brewery industry is challenged by an increasing demand of high performance and cost-efficiency in order to stay competitive.

 

At the same time sustainability and environmental concern have become focus areas for all players in the value chain. This is a challenge for the brewery management teams as well as their suppliers of equipment and process technologies.

 

The participants agreed that the Heineken Suppliers Day was a valuable step to meet this challenge.

Thank you very much to the organizing team from Heineken - we look forward to a mutual beneficial and fruitful cooperation with Heineken in the future.
