This was part of the Slovak beer market’s 6 percent sales growth in H1 2007, Roman Krajniak of Heineken told the SITA newswire.
“Heineken increased its market share in each of the first six months of 2007, reaching 41.5 percent in late June," Krajniak said.
The Slovak beer market has fallen behind in the lastseveral years, but started stabilizing in H2 2006. "The first half of 2007 has also confirmed we’re returning from the negative territory of the last few years," Krajniak said.
