Fund to promote social and economic growth in the region

To mark the occasion of our 400th anniversary, Grolsch has created the Grolsch Craftsmanship is Mastery Fund. The purpose of the fund is to promote 'craftsmanship' in the broadest sense of the word in the regions of Twente and the Achterhoek, where the brewery was born. With this fund, Grolsch hopes to emphasise its regional roots. Each year, the fund will finance initiatives to promote economic growth and social cohesiveness in the region. Grolsch places a high value on character and entrepreneurship on the one hand, and innovation and sustainability on the other.
