If history is your thing, you will appreciate this map from the team at Cloud Peak Law Group that shows the oldest running company in nearly every country. Companies in many different industries are shown with the most common being banking. There are 36 countries on the map which boast banks as their oldest running business. The oldest dates all the way back to 1822 and is located in Argentina. The Banco de la Provincia is still the 2nd second-largest in the country today based on value and deposits. The map also shows that the next biggest industry has to do with alcohol.
There are 18 different breweries, wineries and distilleries with the oldest being from the year 862 located in Germany called the Staffelter Hof Winery. The Affligem brewery is the 2nd oldest in the alcohol industry on the list and is also known as the 'Best Kept Secret' in Belgium by a popular beer podcast. It was started in 1074 in Belgium and offers tours to this day where you can see the old brewing hall and the new one side by side.
