HORECA National Factsheet for Latvia
The hospitality sector in Latvia is very modest, and consequently it is a very small market for glass collection and recycling.
Close the Glass Loop investigated glass packaging waste in the hospitality channel. The study provides a summary of the market characteristics & recycling performance of the hospitality channel across the EU-27MS + the UK, and the waste management governance models available to hospitality operators in 10 of the European countries that have Close the Glass Loop national platforms.
From our detailed study packed with lots of numbers and complex information, we’ve crafted easy-to-read national factsheets. These handy sheets sum up the most important stats and key details for each country in one place. They’re like quick snapshots, making it simple for everyone to understand the main findings without getting lost in all the data.
In Latvia, the market for glass packaging in HORECA establishments remains relatively small due to the limited number of such establishments in comparison to larger European countries. The country’s smaller size and population contribute to fewer hospitality businesses, which consequently reduces the overall demand for glass packaging within this sector.
The hospitality sector in Latvia is very modest, and consequently it is a very small market for glass collection and recycling. This may explain why Latvia ranks 3rd in terms of consumption of one-way glass beverage packaging per establishment, meaning that a targeted approach towards each establishment would yield important results towards glass collection and recycling. Especially as in unit terms, Latvia ranks 7th on the number of one-way glass beverage bottles placed on the market in the HORECA channel, and consumption of glass packaging is in general very high, with Latvia ranking 8th both for kg/capita of glass packaging and specifically one-way glass beverage packaging in HORECA.
