Heineken Land Grab Shatters Lives and Livelihoods in EthiopiaPosted March 27 2023
Revelations by investigative journalist Olivier van Beemen show that Heineken built a new brewery on land on the outskirts of Addis Abba, capital city of Ethiopia.

For Heineken the venture pushed them towards dominating the beer market in Ethiopia. For the people it means shattered lives and livelihoods.
