Heineken has taken total control of Brasserie Nationale d’Haiti, the leading brewer on the troubled Caribbean nation.

The Dutch giant previously held a 22.5% share in the company, known locally as Brana, but today confirmed it had upped its stake to 95%.

“The Haitian beer market has shown solid year-on-year growth, but remains relatively underdeveloped,” said Heineken’s Americas president, John Nicolson.

“A growing population together with increased political and economic stability creates good prospects for continued growth.”
