World’s second-biggest brewer says all four regions had strong results, but Europe was the star performer, though it warns of volatility ahead.

Profit rose to EUR 871m in the first half of 2017, from EUR 586 million in the year-earlier period, the company said.

Heineken is the world’s second-largest brewer after global number one AB InBev clinched a mega d...
