Our business operations also include world-class industrial operations in distillation, bottling and logistics services as well as the production of technical ethanol products, neutral potable ethanol, feed components and barley starch.

Anora was born through the merger of Altia and Arcus in 2021. Anora’s estimated aggregate net sales were EUR 640 million in 2020 and we employ about 1,100 professionals across Northern Europe, France and Germany. Anora shares are listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki and Euronext Oslo.

Leading the way in sustainability

We at Anora believe life is to be enjoyed, but not at the cost of our planet. That's why we want to be best in class in sustainability in our industry. ​

Anora strives for carbon neutral production. Our raw material – grain spirit – is produced through an award-winning circular economy set-up. At the Koskenkorva distillery, our own bioenergy plant has enabled us to lower CO₂ emissions already by 58%.

Our modern production plant at Gjelleråsen operates on the principles of gravity in liquid production handling, and energy sourcing is 70% geothermal and 30% GO green energy. We also promote regenerative barley farming, to reduce the environmental impact of our products even further.​

Nordic values of equality and diversity are at the core of our organisational culture. We want to ensure an inclusive and safe workplace. ​

We support a responsible drinking culture with educative programs as well as with non and low alcoholic products. ​

Our ambition is to stand out and offer the most sustainable products and services in all areas.
