According to news website Nu.nl, brewing giant Heineken has increased the prices paid by cafes and restaurants by an average of 5.8%, which means higher prices for drinks in paved cafes.
Supermarket prices will also rise under the previous agreement, a spokesman for the company told Nu.nl.
The price increase will take effect from August 1st.
Heineken has previously stated that rising prices are inevitable given the high costs of both energy and grain. Wages, packaging and transportation are all expensive, the company said.
