Altia’s financial reporting in 2019

Altia Plc will publish its financial statements bulletin, half-year report and two business reviews in 2019 as follows:

Altia has made a new Baltic Sea Commitment to enhance sustainable agriculture in the production of its beverages. The new commitment continues the co-operation between Altia and Baltic Sea Action Group (BSAG) that was initiated in 2015.

Each year, Blossa travels to new locations around the world to seek inspiration for its annual vintage glögg. Amidst serpentine roads, steep mountain sides and vast lemon groves, Blossa found the destination that has inspired this year’s flavour: the Italian Amalfi Coast. This year's glögg has a taste of limoncello and the Mediterranean herbs of rosemary, thyme and basil.

Altia’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and member of the Executive Management Team, Matti Piri has announced that he will leave the company for a position outside Altia. Matti Piri will continue in his position and as a member of the Executive Management Team until further notice, but no longer than until the end of February 2019.

Altia and its Rajamäki plant are celebrating their 130th anniversary this year. Altia’s story began on 20 August 1888, when a group of engineers decided to establish a yeast plant in Rajamäki. One of the main reasons why Rajamäki was selected as the location for the plant was the plentiful and pure groundwater found in the area. Over 130 years, Altia has evolved from a yeast producer to the leading wine and spirits company in the Nordic countries and a listed company.

Altia and the Swedish gin distillery Hernö Gin have entered a Nordic- and Baltic-wide partnership. Altia will become the exclusive representative of Hernö Gin in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Estonia and Latvia, as well as in travel retail, as of 3 September 2018. The cooperation encompasses both retail and HoReCa sales.
