Mahou San Miguel, family-owned beer market leader in Spain, will allocate over 45 million euros from 2020 to 2023 to drive the future competitiveness and sustainability of its factory in Málaga. With this significant investment plan, the company reinforces the role of this plant, where over 120 people work, as a generator of economic and social progress in the province, to which it has been continuously linked for almost 60 years and where it produces the renowned San Miguel beer.
Two years ago, Mahou San Miguel already announced a comprehensive investment program. At that time, EUR 25 million were invested in all six production facilities in Spain. (inside.beer, 20.8.2021)
The new investment consists of a renovation of the brewing room and the improvement of both returnable and non-returnable packaging lines, key to optimizing production and supply to the Hospitality and Food sectors in Andalusia, are two of the most notable projects in a plan that also encompasses the development of cutting-edge initiatives in the field of sustainable packaging. Additionally, the focus is on energy efficiency and responsible use of resources, positioning these facilities as industry benchmarks for their excellent environmental performance. In fact, Mahou San Miguel has set the goal for this facility, which has a production capacity of 2.5 million hectoliters of beer per year, to be carbon-neutral by 2030, with 100% of its electrical energy consumption already being 100% green and certified.
Alberto Rodríguez-Toquero, CEO of Mahou San Miguel, stated, "For us, this factory, the heart of our San Miguel beer production, is absolutely strategic, and our commitment to this city is long-term. We have been in the province for nearly 60 years, acting as an engine for its economic and social growth. Now, with this new investment, we reinforce our role in continuing to bring value to Málaga and its residents."
