Altia is a leading wine and spirits company offering quality brands in the Nordic and Baltic countries. We produce, market, sell, import and export alcoholic beverages. Sustainability is an essential business factor for us. We want to enhance a modern, responsible Nordic drinking culture.
Altia Partner Brands covers the Nordic and Baltic countries with deep customer collaboration and excellent insight into both open markets and monopoly markets. Our partner collaboration includes import, product development, production and bottling at our modern production facilities as well as brand development.
A sustainable drinking culture is rich, diverse, linked with social life and food culture; it is responsible enjoyment. A responsible drinking culture aims to minimize alcohol related harm and at the same time support the positive aspects of enjoying drinks with moderation. This includes combining food and drink, festivities and traditions, enjoying quality and the small oasis of relaxation in life.
We have crystallized our purpose as a company: Let’s drink better. Better drinking refers to enjoying drinks in a more positive manner. It can be higher quality, smaller quantity, more social, more environmentally friendly or lighter.

Koskenkorva plant invests in growing its barley starch capacity
Altia has decided to expand the Koskenkorva plant’s starch production. The aim of the investment is to notably increase the production capacity of barley starch. The Koskenkorva plant is the only facility in the world that produces starch out of barley. Barley starch is used e.g. in paper and paperboard industries.
