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.
We have published our Responsibility Report 2016. The theme of the report is the development of a new Nordic drinking culture. Altia encourages towards developing a more responsible Nordic drinking culture. During 2016 we have for example opened discussion with various stakeholders and added new types of products into our portfolio.
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.
