Heineken beer’s African forced prostitution scandal

This is a 2015 Heineken corporation advertisement video using girls to sell beer. Advertisements being advertisements, everything seems OK and free from coercion …

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

ASN Bank kicks Heineken out of fund because of promotional girls

The ASN Bank was originally founded by Dutch trade unions, and pays more attention than other banks to environmental sustainability.

ASN Bank will discontinue having Heineken shares in its sustainable equity fund. The bank reacts to earlier disclosures that Heineken promotional girls in Africa have been forced to have sex when getting contracts.

In the book Heineken in Africa, published earlier this year, author Olivier van Beemen describes that these so-called promotional girls are regularly harassed sexually. In some cases they have been pressured to have sex with senior officials of Heineken’s customers.

ASN has held discussions about this with Heineken. However, the bank currently sees too little change in the situation. That is why Heineken has now been removed from the sustainable share fund. …

At the last shareholders’ meeting earlier this year Heineken CEO Jean-François van Boxmeer announced that the brewing corporation is conducting an internal investigation into the undesirable use of promotional girls in fourteen African countries. The big boss also admitted that in his twenties he had an affair with such a girl.
