Heineken has reported consolidated beer volume up 5.4% in Q3 with volume growth in the UK in ‘mid-single digits’, driven by the off-trade.
The company reported consolidated revenue up 7.5% organically to €5.5bn with revenue per hectolitre up 1.8%.
In Europe consolidated revenue increased by 7% organically in Q3, with total volume up 7% and flat revenue per hectolitre.
Consolidated beer volume grew by 6.8% organically, reflecting favourable weather conditions in key markets and easier prior year comparatives for Q3.
Chairman and chief executive Jean-François van Boxmeer said: “Our strong performance in the third quarter is consistent with our earlier 2015 FY guidance that volume would be weighted to the second half of the year. HEINEKEN’s well-balanced global footprint, excellent portfolio of brands, including the recent addition of Red Stripe and partnership with Lagunitas, combined with a powerful innovation agenda are expected to continue to deliver positive top and bottom line growth.”
