The history of vinegar dates back 10,000 years. The ancient Sumerians used this liquid as a spice, preservative, medicine, antibiotic and cleanser, just as people do today. The word ‘vinegar’ is derived from the Latin words ‘vinum’ and ‘acer’, meaning sour wine. Hippocrates, considered the father of medicine, advised his patients in ancient Greece to drink vinegar.
AB Actas is the only company in Lithuania producing natural vinegar. The production of natural spirit vinegar started in 1959.
Today, we produce vinegar using two technologies. The first involves production in fermenters filled with beech wood chips. Vinegar is produced by small organisms – acetic acid bacteria. They ferment ethyl alcohol into vinegar using oxygen. The second technology is an automated deep vinegar fermentation line to be installed in 2020.
In 2016, the company started producing Balsamic vinegar and Glaze with balsamic vinegar.
In 2017, the company's production was modernised with the installation of a modern vinegar packaging line with a bottle blowing machine.
