In December 2015 Heineken Hungária announced: Soproni Klasszikus beer will be made with 100-percent Hungarian barley, thanks to which 100 Hungarian farmers were provided with a steady income. Since 2018 popular alcohol-free Soproni radlers Sour Cherry-Lemon and Elder-Lemon have been made with Hungarian fruits. In the same year the brewery restarted hop growing in Hungary on 1 hectare of land.
