It takes a lot to meet and preferably exceed consumer and customer expectations, both today and in the future. In order for us to develop our business, face challenges and maintain our position as a profitable company we invest in research and innovation within our various areas of business.

Lantmännen has a long tradition of research and innovation. We invest in both our own and external research projects promoting new knowledge. Every year, we invest 250-300 million SEK in various research and innovation projects, from shorter product and process development to long-term projects of benefit to the entire Lantmännen Group. Investments are mainly made within the grain value chain – from plant breeding to consumption. To ensure that that we reap the maximum benefit from our investments we actively work to commercialize results from the research projects.
