Linda Nektar is specialized in producing fermented beverages for the drinks industry. The company is looking to expand existing production capacity as well as develop new revenue streams by investing to scale up R&D in food technologies. Presently the company's operations are mainly in the Baltic countries and Finland, but the company is aiming to expand the business, including targeting new markets.
