We are aware that long-term business sustainability and a potential increase in market share are closely connected to a stronger contribution to the development of the local economy. Furthermore, the sustainable sourcing of quality, locally grown raw materials is one of six focus area of our sustainability strategy Brewing a Better World. We need quality ingredients to produce high-quality beer and we believe in the potential of Croatian agriculture and carefully choose raw materials. They must comply with specifications and high standards and go through demanding quality checks. Together with water, hops and yeast, malted barley is amongst the main ingredients for beer production. We are honoured that our commitment to Croatian agriculture and successful cooperation with local farmers participated in the growth in national barley production. Since 2014, the quantity of purchased barley has increased by 66%, the area of barley fields in Croatia has increased by 16% and the number of family farms growing barley for beer rose by 6%.
