Heineken suspended permits to sell beer in pubs and stores

Heineken suspended permits to sell beer in pubs and stores

Juarez- The government has returned at least 284 files of temporary permits to Heineken, after not fully handing them over for renewal, to the detriment of the same number of establishments in the city.

The Northern District Governance Office on Friday held a meeting with representatives of bars, nightclubs and grocery stores, among others, to analyze the permit issue.

After the meeting, the agency’s head, Maribel Hernandez, noted at a press conference that the problem had resulted in the plant keeping incomplete files for its operators, some of whom were over five years old.

The official indicated that these files had been returned to Heineken since last March, but confirmed that the company was aware of the delay since the previous year.

Similarly, it was clarified that after the first return of the documents, the company was granted an extension that expired on June 24. As it became known, some files lack stationery such as official identification, requirements before Coespris, or even procedures that must be carried out in the municipality.

At today’s meeting in the Mexican city, it was agreed with those affected to sell Heineken products this weekend, while a new meeting will be held from Monday to determine the measures to be implemented.
