When ambition meets ambition

We are proud that Gimv is part of the next growth phase of United Dutch Breweries. The company has developed a unique export driven business model, leveraging on best-in-class European production capacity in Gimv’s core countries. United Dutch Breweries excels at spotting opportunities in different markets and is, thanks to its lean operational structure, able to serve those needs in the most efficient way. We share the ambition to further build out the company’s presence around the globe with strong positions in targeted niches.

Together, we build a leading company

We supported the revamping of the organization while also complexity was reduced in terms of brands and SKUs (Stock Keeping Units). A KPI driven approach was installed which, combined with smart portfolio and distributor management tools, enables United Dutch Breweries to successfully build out its current client base whilst increasing distribution depth and selectively target new opportunities.
