Heineken in Africa: A Multinational Unleashed
After three years of research and hundreds of interviews, Olivier van Beemen concludes that Heineken's presence has hardly benefited the continent at all, and may in fact be rather harmful. He tells the story of how Heineken faced considerable competition from indigenous beer brewing, which it tried to crush. He shows how Heineken collaborates with dictators, authoritarian governments and a convicted war criminal; how it's using a mysterious Belgian operating company to avoid tax; and how the company is linked to human rights violations and high-level corruption.
An unmissable book for anyone interested in how the world's biggest companies operate in the developing world.
