Story of company culture development and culture Heineken was founded by Gerard Adrian Heineken and his mother in 1864 to curb the growing rise of gin addiction in Holland. Gerard believed it was his moral responsibility to brew high-quality beer to eradicate the low-quality beer in the market. As a result, his mother purchased the Amsterdam brewery, and Gerard was in charge of the brewery. After successfully running the brewery for four years, Gerard built a larger brewery and closed the original facility. Six years later, he purchased Rotterdam brewery to increase production and tap the potential demographic. The company changed its name from Heineken Bierbrouwerij Maatschappij NV to the present-day Heineken’s Beer Brewery Company (Advameg Inc). After purchasing the Rotterdam brewer, the company adopted and implemented new cooling techniques to produce quality beer all year round. As a result, the company gained international recognition as the first brewery to break the conventional natural ice seasonal dependence. Following the expert advice of Dr. Elion, a graduate of Louis Pasteur in 1879, Heineken developed a signature recipe that has since been replicated in all breweries run by the company. Since then, Heineken beer is brewed using the same materials and method despite the variations in climate and temperatures in different Heineken brewing facilities to ensure uniformity and consistency of taste among Heineken products. In 1914, Gerard’s son H.P took over the company and facilitated the exportation of Heineken products to neighboring France….
