VP Operations — The Absolut Company
As VP of Operations at The Absolut Company, Anna Schreil is responsible for the production of three global spirits brands; Absolut Vodka, Malibu and Kahlúa. Anna was handpicked for the role because of her profound knowledge when it comes to production, product development, and supply chain management from the food industry.
Anna started at The Absolut Company as Head of Product Development and R&D for Absolut Vodka, Sweden’s largest food export and the world’s fifth largest spirits brand. During her first four years she headed up several projects related to sustainability, innovation and eco-design. Anna has brought her passion for these issues into her current role.
Anna is based in the small town of Åhus in southern Sweden where every single drop of Absolut Vodka is produced. Today, the vodka production is climate neutral and the most energy-efficient large distillery in the world. The goal is set to become a completely sustainable and circular production site with net zero resource consumption and net zero climate impact by 2040.
