The International Spirits Challenge, one of the most recognized competitions in the industry, has awarded Altia the title of Vodka Producer of the Year. This recognition is a true testament not only to Altia’s skilled product development work and high-quality production, but also to Finnish barley and pure ground water, which are used to distill vodka for home and export markets at Altia’s pioneering Koskenkorva distillery.
Altia was awarded Gold Medal in EcoVadis Corporate Social Responsibility rating in April. Altia got 71/100 points and scored higher than 98% of all the companies rated. Over 55 000 companies have been rated by EcoVadis across 198 purchasing categories and 150 countries. Altia strengths included its advanced management system in environmental topics. Key development feedback was to develop even further the formalised policies in sustainable procurement.
