We are implementing the same excellent execution practices and high standards across all our companies and we will apply the same principles to each of our distribution companies,” said Jekaterina Stuģe, CEO of Amber Beverage Group.

 

“We are looking forward to aligning our business practices with the other ABG distribution companies across the world under the new name of Amber Beverage UK and will continue to offer the same high-quality level of service to our clients.
