I am pleased that the Group has reported an increase in revenue and profit as compared to the same period in 2021 as the Group recovers above pre-pandemic levels with reopening of on-trade and entertainment channel and Malaysia’s international borders. HEINEKEN Malaysia’s revenue increased by 44% to RM2.86 billion (FY2021: RM1.98 billion), mainly attributable to an increase in sales volume following the reopening of international borders, increased on-trade consumption, as well as a positive mix impact from premium portfolio growth.
We will remain responsive to the volatile business environment and new market realities, with a focus on delivering our EverGreen strategy, in order to continue to invest behind our brands and capabilities, as well as future-proof the business to unlock efficiencies and reinvest in growth drivers. We welcome the stance taken by the Government not to increase the excise duties on beer in the latest Budget 2023 review announced in February 2023, as any hike in excise rates will further fuel illicit alcohol demand..
It is our responsibility to preserve and protect the environment for the present as well as future generations. For HEINEKEN Malaysia, this means having bold and progressive measures in place to drive positive change through our environmental endeavours guided by HEINEKEN’s sustainability strategy, Brew a Better World.
