Lauri Multanen, Olvi Group Production

Olvi is a Finnish beverage company, which wants to offer beverage enjoyment for its consumers. In 1878 Master Brewer William Gideon Åberg and his wife Onni founded a brewery in Iisalmi for the purpose of fighting drunkenness. In the spirit of the author Zacharias Topelius, they wanted to offer milder alternatives to citizens possessed by a lust for spirits. At that time, there were some 78 breweries in Finland. Olvi is the only one left in independent Finnish ownership.vCurrently the company operates locally in Finland, the Baltic states, Denmark and Belarus.
