Scottish & Newcastle UK has confirmed that it will formally change its name to Heineken UK.

S&N became part of the Heineken Group in April 2008 and the name change will take effect from 23 November.

“Over the past 18 months we’ve been working together to integrate S&N UK into the wider Heineken business,” said S&N UK managing director Stefan Orlowski. “Now that we have successfully completed our integration, we would like our name to reflect our vision of working together and to embrace our position within the wider Heineken group.”

The Scottish & Newcastle name will continue to be used by the company’s pub management business, which will become the Scottish & Newcastle Pub Company.
