Estonia's software development sector is vibrant, ranging from startups to multinationals in segments such as games, fintech, e-commerce, cleantech, enterprise and e-government.

2. Food Industry

Estonia is a country that benefits from a natural and, in many cases, untouched environment. Raw material inputs are of high quality, generally organic and sourced from clearly identifiable local sources.

Estonia is increasingly becoming a center of export-oriented activities. Regional giants such as Orkla, Saarionen and Lantmännen export the end product from Estonia to European markets. Estonia's high quality raw materials are exported globally for use in the food, beverage, healthcare, animal feed and horticulture sectors.

The history of innovation in food science in Estonia is a long one. Today, Lallemand, a global leader in the development, production and marketing of yeast, bacteria and specialty ingredients, operates a state-of-the-art global R&D center for functional molecules and targeted evolution in Estonia in collaboration with TalTech. Finnish dairy giant Valio conducts R&D on lactose-free and digestion-enhancing foods.

4. Logistics

Estonia occupies a strategic location with excellent multimodal connections to the Nordic, Baltic, European Union and Commonwealth of Independent States markets, supported by necessary protocols and language skills. It is also consistently ranked among the most open and competitive economies in the world, and low bureaucracy ensures the flow of goods and data efficiently.

Estonians are experienced in managing complex industrial supply chains and have experience in sensitive cargoes such as petrochemicals and fulfillment just in time.

Continued investment in IT and infrastructure projects further enhances Estonia's affordable market and competitiveness. New possibilities in the North-South, East-West supply chain are emerging.

Estonia is applying IT to transform all aspects of supply chain management, from business planning to e-customs, automated goods handling and final delivery. Combined with the expertise in shared supply chain services, Estonia is increasingly becoming an integrated business Supply Chain Management hub.
