Germany: Heineken will Also be Hit Hard by the Second Corona Shutdown
Heineken cuts 8,000 jobs. Beer breweries will also be hit hard by the second corona shutdown. “Bathtubs” full of beer have to be thrown away because the best-before date has expired.
Closed restaurants and bars. Public life has been paralyzed for months. The second shutdown at the latest brings innkeepers and many beer brewers to the brink of ruin.
Now there is also a risk of drastic consequences for the employees of the breweries.
Now the second largest brewer in the world, the Dutch brewer Heineken, announced that it intends to cut 8,000 of its 86,000 jobs worldwide. Heineken is saving and rebuilding the group. Last year, like many companies in this industry, the brewer slipped into the red. The bottom line was that Heineken made a loss of 204 million euros.
It would certainly not go uphill again until the whole world has been vaccinated to a certain extent, according to company circles. But the renewed lockdown extension makes business more difficult every day.
Chancellor Merkel and the prime ministers are again discussing the current Corona situation today.
