Since 2012, over €35 million has been invested in, amongst others, a new brewing hall, new filtration units, a new steam boiler, new refrigeration compressors, a new barrel line, a new water purification installation and bottling plant. Thanks to all these investments and in spite of a continuous volume increase, the brewery has succeeded in substantially reducing its (raw materials) consumption. The brewery has also made huge efforts in terms of waste reduction and processing.
