Responsibilities and Commitments
We work to ensure that our business activities have a positive impact on the wellbeing of our employees and on society in general
We take care of our employees by providing good working conditions, social guarantees, and benefits. The CSR platform www.atbildigi.lv, part of the global initiative www.responsibledrinking.eu, is one of the social programs we support to educate the public on the responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages.
We invest in the vocational education of young people by providing student internships and cooperate with universities on youth development projects. Our grant program supports talented young specialists in the fields of logistics, economics, quality control, production automation, and chemistry.
We continuously work to ensure a responsible approach to environmental issues
The maintenance of high operations standards for ourselves and our business partners is a top priority, as is systematically working to reduce the impact of company activities on the environment. One example is the environmentally friendly packaging we use.
We operate and maintain a high-quality artesian well on company premises for the manufacture of our products and make sure that we use water, energy, and other resources carefully and considerately. Each year we deliver over 1000 tons of materials for recycling.
