Analysis of raw materials and products
Brewing and Distilling Industry
Breweries and distilleries have a long tradition in the NPA region. Apart from very few larger companies most producers operate in small or micro-sized companies. This industry is particularly interesting because it is resource intensive and huge amounts of biomass are remaining after the production process.

According to FAOSTAT, potato is one of the most important agricultural crops for human consumption and high amount is produced worldwide every year. In particular, the EU produced about 60.7 million tons of potatoes1.
Fish Product Manufacturing
Fisheries contribute immensely to global food and nutritional security. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that fisheries and aquaculture provide livelihoods to over 10-12% of global population. About 75% of fish resources are used for human consumption globally.
