The Polish subsidiary of Heineken, Zywiec brewing group, saw its nine-month sales volumes increase some 5% on the same period last year, the country's press reported Zywiec president Nico Nusmeier saying yesterday.

"We managed to grow more than the market - the 5% growth is slightly faster than the market's 3.6% - thereby increasing our market share," Nusmeier said.

The result is in line with Zywiec's predictions after a strong first half to maintain its growth rates, thanks to a restructuring policy.
