Heineken Mexico is investing approximately $460 million to build a state-of-the-art brewery in Yucatán. The brewery will integrate circular economy practices that ensure water reuse through cutting-edge treatment systems. It also will operate with minimal waste and utilize renewable energy sources through advanced processes, equipment, and technology.
The construction will take place in the Kanasín municipality, making it the company’s first brewery in the southeast region, allowing Heineken to address the growing demand in the area while capitalizing on the region’s road, rail, and port connectivity. Operations at the facility are projected to begin in 2026. The site will produce brands such as Tecate, Dos Equis, Indio, Bohemia, Amstel Ultra, and Sol, among others.
