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 full year of 2017 amounts to 1 552 MSEK – a result on a par with last year’s previous record result of 1 548 MSEK. Due to the strong result, the Board of Directors has proposed the highest dividend in Lantmännen’s history for its members – a total dividend of 566 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.
In an innovative We Effect project supported by Lantmännen, 15 000 children in Malawi are now receiving school meals produced by local farmers. By educating farmers in sustainable agriculture, We Effect has helped them increase their harvests.
Lantmännen is constantly looking for new ways to contribute to a more sustainable world. In a new project that aims to create an entirely new type of furniture and interior design products based on oat husks, Lantmännen will provide the raw material.
Lantmännen is Sweden's most sustainable brand in the food category, according to Swedish consumers. Overall, Lantmännen is rated the third most sustainable brand in Sweden according to the Sustainable Brand Index survey.
Lantmännen’s business concept is to process farmland resources in an innovative and responsible manner. Our knowledge of grain, presence along the entire value chain and long-term approach enables us to contribute to sustainable energy supply and food security.
Our work on responsibility and sustainable business covers a wide range of issues across the value chain – from the cultivation of our raw materials to the sale and consumption of the products and goods Lantmännen offers.
