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.
Together we take responsibility from field to fork. That is Lantmännen’s brand promise. Our customers and consumers should feel confident that we have the knowledge and control throughout our operations, and that we are doing everything we can to minimise the negative impact on people, the environment and natural resources.
What we eat has great influence on our health and the environment. With growing population and global environmental challenges, we need food habits for a healthier lifestyle and food that is cultivated and produced within the planet's boundaries. Read more about the challenges.
Lantmännen contributes to sustainable food production through farming, refinement and feed as well as production. Quality is a key part of our work. Read more about Quality- and sustainability work.
Farming is the first important step, read more about Sustainable cultivation. We also want to contribute to a more sustainable food consumption through development of products and ranges and to increased knowledge and consumer awareness by disseminating information about nutrition, health, wellbeing and the environment in different ways.
The Lantmännen cooperative is founded on the knowledge and values that our owners have built up over generations. The 25,000 Swedish farmers who make up Lantmännen process the grain produced on Swedish farms and run the business in a way that ensures sustainable and thriving farming. Our members and owners are business partners and they share the Group’s profit through dividends, while they also have a shared responsibility to manage the planet for future generations.
Lantmännen has a long tradition of research and innovation. Through our investments we ensure thriving farming and can be edge-leading in products and services with sustainability added values.
Quality, safety and traceability are key parts of our work. The green sprout we put on our packaging stands for responsibly produced food. Food that we work hard to produce in a sustainable way, from field to fork. We have well-developed systems to ensure quality and food safety, with many checkpoints along the production chain.
Lantmännen’s expertise in grain and cultivation give us a unique opportunity to contribute to more sustainable production while creating profitable added value for health and the environment.
Our work on innovation and business development has resulted in several good examples which contribute to a more sustainable food supply.
Our work to take responsibility from field to fork contributes to sustainable food production. There are three major challenges to address here, which are common to the supply of food all over the world.
Food production accounts for a large proportion of climate impact. To make sure we are still able to have productive agriculture in the future, we need to reduce our climate impact, especially in farming, but also in processing and transport.
Nearly 9 billion people and still only one planet. To produce good food for everyone, we need to be as efficient as possible, make smart use of resources and minimize waste. At all stages from field to fork.
What we eat and how we eat are important. Both for our health and for the environment. A better understanding and more informed choices are needed in order to promote a lifestyle that is healthy and sustainable. In other words, eating habits that makes us feel good and which the Earth can support.
Based on business intelligence and stakeholder dialogues we have identified a number of issues that are of particular interest to many of our customers and consumers. These issues mainly concern sustainable farming, and our primary and end products.

The question of whether organic or conventional farming is the best solution for a sustainable food production has been raised many times. Lantmännen believes that both conventional and organic cultivation methods need to be further developed.
To ensure responsible palm oil production, we only purchase RSPO-certified palm oil. We are also working to accelerate the transition to this responsible sourcing together with colleagues in the industry and interest groups.
