If you are reading this, you have reached HEINEKEN D&T’s Beer & Tech site and are in for an inspiring time.

Here at HEINEKEN D&T, our focus is enabling our company to remain the global institution we have built over the past 150+ years by being top of our industry looking into the future.

Whether it be designing the latest model of Smart Fridge, or workshopping with our Robotics Team (that’s right, we have robots), we are customer-focused and continuously innovative. We keep HEINEKEN safe with our Security Framework, building digital trust with our stakeholders, and we keep HEINEKEN smart by brewing just as much data as we do beer, working findings into our daily operations through Advanced Analytics.

So welcome to D&T, and welcome to the Beer & Tech movement. Got questions? Join us and ask them! We’re excited to have you. !
