FRANCE: Heineken to trim French workforce
Heineken is to axe just over 200 jobs in France by 2007 as it adapts production levels to the steady decline in demand.
Beer consumption fell by 6% last year in keeping with the long-term downward trend in the sector.
While the Dutch brewer's cutbacks programme does not make provision for the closure of any of its French plants, staff numbers at three sites - Mons en Baroeul, in the north, Schiltigheim (Alsace) and Marseilles - are to be reduced in order to improve competitiveness. Jobs at the St Omer plant, in northern France, will be unaffected.
The Dutch brewer employs a total of 3,000 staff in France.
In September 2003 Heineken announced that its subsidiary Heineken Nederlands Beheer was to undergo a significant restructuring, which would result in the loss of 450 jobs over a two year period.
