  • Annual report 2023: We are Royal Swinkels

    Despite challenging market conditions in 2023, Royal Swinkels Family Brewers achieved a solid increase in revenue. Geopolitical tensions, war in sales markets, inflation, the energy crisis, and climate change have shaped a turbulent world and a volatile market. Nevertheless, the family business continued to drive forward, and positive results were achieved. Investments in sustainable growth ensured that the circularity score rose to 61%, 2 percentage points more than in 2022. We are confidently building the future of our company. And we are now doing so under a new name: Royal Swinkels.

  • Annual report 2020: Shoulder to Shoulder

    After 2019, a year full of celebratory highlights for our company, 2020 became a year we won't soon forget for very different reasons. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic hit our business hard in virtually every country in which we operate. Due to lockdown measures such as closing on-trade establishments, cancelling festivals and a curfew in several countries, a large part of the turnover evaporated. This made 2020 into a year in which we, as a family business, were challenged to show our resilience. And we did exactly that. With the aim of emerging stronger from the crisis, we immediately, in collaboration with all the divisions, came up with an action plan. Although the impact of COVID-19 on our employees was substantial and still is, we are now all demonstrating the fact that our company really deserved the Royal designation. At the same time, we developed plans for the future.
