Company Response

Heineken response to Australian Council of Trade Unions campaign raising concerns about the situation of women promoting beer brands in Asia

Heineken has always taken its responsibilities in relation to promotion women in Cambodia and has always advocated an industry-wide approach for maximum effect...In this context, the picture sketched by Ms Sharan Burrow of ACTU is rather inaccurate or at least unbalanced. In Cambodia promotion women are employed through special agencies and via partners of Heineken. Heineken is responsible for training promotion women in selling our beers in a professional and responsible way, for training promotion women how to deal with clients and for organising a safe working environment...What Heineken offers is fair labour, salary and working conditions, as well as training...Heineken considers this to be a human rights issue and we will continue to act accordingly...With regard to any forced sexual contact, Heineken ensures a safe working environment where these forced contacts cannot take place and we are very much committed to this.
