AB InBev invests EUR 55 million in Leuven brewery
The existing fermentation and filtration units in Leuven will be expanded and a fourth production line will be added. The works — which start in October and will be completed by early 2017 — will increase the brewery’s capacity by a third, from 9 to 12 million hectoliters — more than the Heineken brewery in Zoeterwoud (the Netherlands).
With this increased capacity, the company aims to meet the growing export demand. Today, no less than 70% of the plant’s production is exported. In an official statement, Eric Lauwers, CEO of AB InBev Benelux and France states: “Stella Artois is the best-selling Belgian beer worldwide, and we are extremely proud of our roots in Leuven, Flanders.”
