Heineken is finally leaving Russia
The Dutch brewery Heineken has finally decided to stop its operations in Russia. After over a year, it sent the contract for approval to Russian regulators and promised to leave this country.
In March 2022, the multinational beer brand declared its intention to leave Russia. However, a year later, they were confronted with backlash for staying in the country. The local bureaucracy’s desire to safeguard local employees and avert nationalization by the Russian government caused the delay.
Harold van den Broek, Chief Financial Officer, said, as reported by the Financial Times, they requested an application for approval in connection with the transfer of ownership of Heineken’s business in Russia and is now awaiting approval from the authorities of the Russian Federation.
Heineken announced that it expects a loss of 300 million euros from the sale.
