Latvia’s Aldaris brewery has started selling its products in China, France and the Netherlands, the company reported LETA.

So far Aldaris exported its products to eight markets, of which the UK was the biggest one, with 78.71% of the company’s exports.


The company said that in November Aldaris in cooperation with the Latvian Investments and Development Agency presented Mezpils dark beer at the economic and trade, technologies and culture forum of the Central and Eastern Europe and China.


"Even though the cooperation agreement with China was signed a year ago, so far there has been a long process of strengthening cooperation, inspections and certifications in line with China’s legislation and food safety regulations," said the company said, adding that this year the first test shipment of 10,000 liters of Mezpils dark beer has been sent to China.


Meanwhile, the company’s newest market is the Netherlands. Two cooperation agreements have been signed in this market. In France a cooperation with one of the retail chains has been signed.


The company continues search for new cooperation partners in Europe and outside Europe.


Aldaris exports its products to the UK, Denmark, Ireland, the US, Finland, Australia, Estonia and Poland, and now also to China, the Netherlands and France.


As reported, in 2013 Aldaris decided to focus on premium class and craft beer production, and moving production of cheaper or PET-bottled beers to other Carlsberg group breweries in Lithuania and Estonia.


Aldaris, founded in 1865, is the largest brewery in Latvia and one of the biggest in the Baltics. It is part of the Carlsberg group, one of the world's largest beer makers.
