One big family
Lantmännen is an agricultural cooperative founded on the deep knowledge our farmers have aquired over generations. We make farming thrive and work together to take responsibility from field to fork.
Lantmännen is an agricultural cooperative and Northern Europe’s leader in agriculture, machinery, bioenergy and food products. Owned by 25,000 Swedish farmers, we have 10,000 employees, operations in over 20 countries and an annual turnover of EUR 4 billion (SEK 40 billion). With grain at the heart of our operations, we refine arable land resources to make farming thrive.
Some of our best-known food brands are AXA, Bonjour, Kungsörnen, GoGreen, Gooh, FINN CRISP, Schulstad and Vaasan. Our company is founded on the knowledge and values acquired through generations of farmers. With research, development and operations throughout the value chain, together we take responsibility from field to fork.
Lantmännen’s result for the first eight months of 2018, after net financial items and adjusted for items affecting comparability, amounts to 1 058 MSEK – compared to last year’s result of 1 112 MSEK.
The green sprout emblem on our packaging guarantees responsibly produced food. Food that we make an effort to provide in a sustainable manner, from field to fork.
Lantmännen forecasts a total of 4.2 million tonnes for the Swedish harvest in 2018, the lowest figure since 1992. Harvest per hectare is over 30 percent below the five-year average. The reduced harvest is a big fall in income for Sweden's farmers.
To improve the situation for Sweden’s farmers after the heat wave and drought this summer, a powerful support package was put forward by Lantmännen to its members. One part of the package was an extra dividend which now has been paid to the members.
