Fulltime Internship Commerce Africa & Middle East bij Heineken Amsterdam
Bedrijfsnaam:
XL Studenten Uitzendbureau Groningen

Bedrijfsprofiel:
For more than a century HEINEKEN has been present in Africa and passionate about the continents’ huge potential for growth. The combination of growing populations, strong expected economic growth, improved political stability and in many markets an emerging, brand-conscious middle class creates attractive growth opportunities. These trends in 2012 benefited Heineken®, the clear leading IPS brand in Africa, and our regional blockbuster brands such as Primus, Star, Gulder, MÜtzig, Maltina and Turbo King. A focus on innovation is helping us to drive volume and market share growth at both a market and regional level. We continued to invest ahead of the anticipated growth curve in Africa to enable us to seize the opportunity. Capacity expansion programs were implemented in Algeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Rwanda and Tunisia. In addition, we invested in upgrading the two breweries that we acquired in Ethiopia in 2011 and in reinvigorating the local brands. The results have been encouraging. We have also made good progress in the development of a green-field brewery close to Addis Ababa that will brew Heineken®.
