Improving water quality and access in Vietnam

Our Huda brand launched five additional projects focused on securing and stabilising community water sources, reaching around 27.000 people.

Brewed and bottled in central Vietnam for 30 years, our popular Huda brand is deeply rooted in its local communities.

Many people across the region still get their drinking water from unhygienic wells or ponds, store rainwater or are forced to buy costly bottled water to avoid drinking from contaminated supplies. Even where public taps are available, they often run dry.

In 2021, the Huda brand launched five additional projects focused on securing and stabilising community water sources. Together with the projects run over the previous two years, these will provide around 27,000 people with access to clean water.

Huda’s highly effective approach offers a useful template as we partner to extend water projects in priority areas across Asia to fulfil our 2030 target to safeguard shared water resources.

 “Since ages a communal well has been our village’s water source. Day in day out, we took buckets of water from that well home for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene. Every day we anticipated the completion date [of the Huda project] to be able to access freshwater for our daily life,” says a Villager, central Vietnam.

Sharing best practice is key to our approach to eliminating water waste across our breweries. The team at our Dazhulin brewery, China, cut water use by 18% in just four months, without significant investment.
