International Internships in Commerce and Supply Planning

We are Swinkels Family Brewers, a 100% independent brewers family with a large portfolio of brands like Bavaria, Palm and La Trappe. As family business we set our own course and to persevere and be committed on the long term to our family goals. With this mentality we are already in business for over 300 years with a shared passion for beer and quality. This we do with over 2.000 colleagues around the world who everyday aim to get the best out of themselves and ensure our breweries are in an even better condition for the next generation.


For our brewery in Cuba, Cerveceria Cubana S.A. we are actively looking for internship positions for commerce and supply chain. The supply chain department is responsible for material and production planning and the linking pin between commerce, purchasing and production. With new product introductions and increased complexity this offers new challenges to our business. On the other hand, the commercial department is focused on expanding our route-2-market and logistic footprint in the country. 


Join the family!

As a family business, we think in terms of generations rather than years. This sets us apart from other companies. Using our pioneering spirit as a compass,  we have become a respected international player with an extensive portfolio of beers, brands, and malts.
