The Dutch brewing giant said that lower sales in the UK - compared to the US, Poland and Thailand where Heineken is positioned in the premium segment - restricted the growth of worldwide Heineken beer sales to 22.9 million hl, an increase of 2.5%.
To boost UK sales Heineken will this week be introduced in the premium segment, the company added.
Looking ahead Heineken said it expected further growth in net profit in 2003 despite a number of “uncertainties”.
