SAOPAULO (Reuters) – Heineken NV will invest 550 million reais (110.06 million pounds) to renovate four of its plants in Brazil, the company said in a statement.
Heineken will renovate plants in the cities of Araraquara, Itu and Jacarei, and a microbrewery in Campos de Jordao, all in Brazil’s most populated state, Sao Paulo. The company will also open a new distribution centre in the state.
Newspaper Folha de S. Paulo reported the investment earlier on Thursday.
