What are their strategies plan to

expand the Market to Thailand?
Friday, May 11
Goal : I’m going to research about general information about the Heineken
Holding Company.

What I’ve learned: Back in 1864, Gerard Heineken who was a founder of Heineken met his passion to begin beer business. He
bought a piece of land, which is now in Amsterdam. He created an unknown beer brewery and try to figure out the perfect recipe.
That recipe has become the first lager beer brand in Holland. The rumors spread quickly and the Heineken name was stamped on
every bottle. Over the past 140 years, his brewery has expanded and inherited for the fourth generation. But the name on the
bottle remains the same name does not change today.
Targets : 63% are men
Age 21-34
Sport Fan
College Educated
Middle to High Income
New Question : How can Heineken become one of the famous brewing company?
Reflection: I think that I have to research more about Heineken in order to know its better. I should use the time wisely. I did
good in summarize the information.

Goal : I’m going to research how can Heineken become famous.

What I’ve learned:

Heineken takes longer time than usual to ferment a perfect yellowish beer with the best quality which takes 
28 days.

Heineken is a famous beer brand and is known for its great advertising campaigns.

Heineken strength are Iconic brands elements (which are packing, logo and font)

Strong brand Equity and High Brand Awareness

Heineken reflected the culture and tradition through the packaging and advertising.

Heineken make the consumers believe that "Consumers can count on Heineken as a friend” through project

Heineken also using 100% natural ingredients during brewing process.

Heineken's key ingredients are purely natural ingredients, including malt, barley, hop, and A-Yeast A-Yeast

Some of the website says that the thing that make Heineken famous is their advertisement

Advertisement from the campaign ‘It could only be Heineken’ (2000s) Poster from an advertising campaign for the former Dutch East Indies: “Heineken’s beer, the best served beer” (40s)

Heineken also build a very good brand image such as sponsor a sport events and being a sponsor can make them
getting closer to their customers even the groups that are non - Heineken drinkers.
Heineken also supports the drinkers to have responsibility to take care of themselves.
New Question: What are Heineken products?
Reflection: I can understand more about Heineken and what make them become well-known. I think, I have to
improve my reading skill in order to understand the topic deeply.

Goal: I’m going to research on Heineken products.

What I’ve learned:

3. Draught
Beer doesn’t like air. It affects the fresh crisp taste. A world-class
Heineken deserves world-class protection: a firm foam head. It’s a seal that keeps
the air out and the fine bubbles in and makes sure you can enjoy the taste as it
meant to be.

4. The Can

from light and air. Be reassured the can saves the balanced richness in
taste, the refreshing clarity and a beautiful golden-yellow colour inside.

Monday, May 21
Goal : I’m going to research on Alcohol Consumption in Thailand.

What I’ve learned : The World Health Organization (WHO) Global Alcohol Database tracks the
increase in Thai adult per capita consumption from 0.26 liters in 1961 to 8.47 liters of pure alcohol
in 2012. Most significantly, beer consumption had an eightfold growth between 1982 and 2001.
Thai unrecorded consumption was estimated to be 2 liters of pure alcohol per capita in 2003.

Age range ( 2013 ) : 77 % are adult (25 - 59) 15% are teenagers (15 - 24) 8% are elders
(above 60)

By regions ( 2013 ) : 23% from North 40% from North-East 21% from Central 8% from
Bangkok 8% from South

Drinking style :  Groups of Thais prefer to order a bottle of spirits to share and a bucket of
ice and a few optional mixers.

Popular Beer Brands : Singha (priest local beer choices) / Leo ( cheaper than Singha but
from the same brewery) / Chang ( 6.4 % of alcohol with a better taste)

New Question: When can the sellers sell alcohol in Thailand and What are some famous

Goal : I’m going to research general information about Alcohol in Thailand.

What I’ve learned : Alcohol policy in Thailand is quite comprehensive. It includes tax which
increased by up to 30 baht per bottle, while beer will rise by 0.50 baht per can and 2.66 baht per
bottle since September 16, 2017. Thus, seller license, arrangements on time and place of sale,
prohibition of advertisement from 05.00-22.00 hours or the so-called partial ban introduced in
2003 and control of advertising content. There are some days and time when the sale of alcohol is
restricted. On religious holidays and elections it may be hard to find shops that are selling alcohol.
On regular days retailers are not supposed to sell alcohol between midnight and 11:00 and
14:00-17:00. For an Entertainment places have the right to sell alcohol only from 21:00 to 24:00.

Types of Alcohol in Thailand :

Thai beer

Thai wine

Thai rum

Thai whiskey

Thai brandy
Exotic drinks
New Question: What are the ways to promote Heineken’s product?

Reflections: I have to explain clearly about types of alcohol drink but, maybe I don’t need that

Goal : I’m going to research impact of alcohol in Thailand.

What I’ve learned :

Sources ; Kannika, N., The impact of Alcohol advertisement during the football world cup
inThailand. 2006, ABAC poll, Assumption University: Bangkok. [inThai]

According to Thamarangsi’s (2008) study points out Thai drinkers enjoy cheaper imported
and locally produced branded beverages and Promotion of Corporate Social Responsibility has
been the recent trend among alcohol operators, including social donations and sponsorships to
sport persons, events and broadcast. From a survey, 80.5% of teenagers wanted to pay back to a
beer company that sponsored the free broadcast of 2006 soccer world cup22. Another study
shows that Thai students have high brand loyalty to the beer company that sponsors the national
soccer team while many primary students positively perceive this beer company and brand as a
philanthropic cause that they should contribute towards. Which mean that if Heineken set their
products' prices lower and sponsor some of sports event or festival, they might have a chance to
expand their group of customers.

New Question : What are some possible events that Heineken can host?

Reflections : I think these informations are very helpful with the plan that I am going to make.

Thursday, 31 May
Goal : Today, I’m going to pick one of my favorite campaign of Heineken and analyze all of the
information and create a product.


Since Heineken is well- known for its creative campaigns, which are created to activate the
sales volume. I choose to research more about the Global campaign in 2014, named ‘Open Your
City, Open Your World’ not just because of this campaign was set in Thailand. This campaign
encouraged people in the new generation to create something new or introduce something new in
their hometown. This campaign also inspired people to change their monotonous lifestyle to have
more fun and colorful. For those who want to be part of this campaign, Heineken had fun
activities for everyone to try out with. The one who receives more " mileage" means that they have
more chances to win. For the winner, Heineken offers you a special 72-hour world class
experience with 4 cities including New York (USA) / Amsterdam (Netherland) / Rio De Janeiro
(Brazil) / Tokyo (Japan). They can receive "mileage" from "City Explorer", you have to be part of
"Heineken Open Your City" project weekly in Heineken Facebook Page. Next, "360 Explorer",
challengers have to join Facebook Game to find Heineken Bottle Cities Edition Bottle Hidden To
earn mileage. "Snap Your City", Create Your Story, share your vision with Heineken's media-
related campaigns. It is clear that the bottle is a special version of Heineken recently made (the
bottle has a city name added) Posted on Instagram with a hashtag. #openyourcity and
@heineken_th. Lastly, "Open Your City Adventures". This one is the most interesting one for me.
Challengers have to brave enough to get on the Heineken's exclusive car to experience the
unknown city. Heineken has also produced 10 limited-edition city cans that feature five local
cities, and five international cities. Limited-edition cans will feature Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya,
Korat, Phuket, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Madrid, Rome, and Sydney for consumers to collect.
According to an article in Thai PR, the campaign will be launched together with a new 320ml
‘sleek’ can price around 44 THB ($1.25) that is said to be the first in the Thai beer market.

Reflections : I finish my journal with tons of information already, I think that I did good with my
searching topics and Informations. I have to improve my English skills and I have to manage my
time wisely.
