Heineken is to invest £50 million in its Manchester Brewery in addition to the £58 million already announced for its cider plant at Hereford; in order to modernise the facilities and expand the capacity at both sites. A further £18 million will be invested in upgrading and modernising Heineken UK’s Star Pubs & Bars estate.

This investment will ensure that Heineken’s UK production facilities remain at the forefront of industry standards to help meet continued demand for its strong portfolio of ciders and beers.

Heineken is the UK’s leading cider and beer producer with a strong brands portfolio including Strongbow, Bulmers, Heineken, Foster’s, Kronenbourg 1664 and Desperados, together with a full range of speciality brands.

Heineken UK employs around 2,000 people across eight sites. It has breweries, cider plants and offices in Edinburgh, Livingston, Tadcaster, Manchester, London, Hereford and Ledbury.

Star Pubs & Bars is Heineken’s leased pub business which is made up of an estate of around 1,250 pubs throughout the UK.

Heineken Manchester is the world’s biggest brewer of Foster’s as well as home to Kronenbourg 1664 in the UK. Heineken is spending £50 million to increase brewing production by approximately 2 million hectolitres per annum (around 350 million pints); and on a new kegging line which will provide pubs with quality draught beer. The Manchester Brewery is a strategic production site within its UK brewing network, and the investment will enable Heineken to continue to meet strong customer demand for is brands into the future. The Manchester brewery investment will secure 240 jobs, and work will be completed in the summer of 2015
