Expansion to the Baltic countries begins in Lithuania

Atria acquires its first company in the Baltic region. Meat processor Vilniaus Mesa, based in Vilnius, Lithuania, is merged into the Group. 

Long traditions, new factory

Vilniaus Mesa, acquired by Atria in 2003, is a meat processor with long traditions and an established position on Lithuanian tables. The company mainly manufactures sausages, and also exports them to other countries in the Baltic region. At the time of the acquisition, the company is developing rapidly – the following year, a new, modern meat product plant is completed in Vilnius. 


Vilniaus Mesa’s TipTop mini salamis are also popular in Lithuania’s neighbouring countries, especially in Estonia.
