A. Le Coq

2004 ‒ The Largest Estonian Beverage producer ‒ A. Le Coq


In the beginning of the 21st century, A. Le Coq became the largest manufacturer of beverages in Estonia, having increased the number of product groups up to ten, including waters, juices, soft drinks and sports drinks along with alcoholic drinks such as beer, cider and long drinks. It was the time when A. Le Coq became the market leader in the juice, sports drink, cider and long drink categories.

New filling lines for cans and plastic bottles, new pasteurization equipment for bottling beer and juice as well as the introduction of new, high quality plastic bottles have all contributed to the current success of A. Le Coq.

Major breakthrough for A. Le Coq was in 2003, when the company acquired the juice manufacturer Ösel Foods Ltd. and continued the production of Aura juices. In 2004, A. Le Coq became the first beverage manufacturer in Estonia whose annual production exceeded a hundred million litres of beverages, further securing the company’s leading position in the market.

In 2005, the company started to produce near waters, a new product group in the Estonian market. The same year also saw the launch of foil-covered cans and a year later, embossed cans. In 2006, A. Le Coq bought a new filling line for cans that made it possible to produce 6-packs with a convenient handle. An important milestone for A. Le Coq Ltd. was the relocation of its storage house and distribution to a new logistics centre, leaving more space for the PET bottling line, thus doubling the production capacity of plastic bottles.
