The choices we make help build a brighter future. As a major Nordic food company, we feel a great sense of responsibility for the impact of our actions and our business, and we believe that we can affect the future in many ways. Every day.
That is why we work hard to promote the use of sustainably produced and sourced products. And that is why one of the four main goals of our sustainability program is 100% sustainably sourced.
We know that the production of soy can have negative effects on the environment, such as deforestation and biodiversity loss. And we know that these effects can be reduced and prevented with responsible soy production. Because of this, soy is one of the ingredients we pay extra close attention in our sourcing.
We use only responsibly produced, certified soy in our products. This means that all soy used in our production chains either directly or indirectly complies with the requirements of RTRS (The Roundtable on Responsible Soy) or ProTerra certification.
We use soy directly as an ingredient of some of our products. In addition to the direct use, soy is also used indirectly in the production of meat, fish, dairy products and eggs – about 70 percent of all soy used in the world is used for animal feed.

Good for people, food for the planet
We want to do good for people and for the environment. This is a part of our strategy, our heritage, and our future – of everything we do. To us, food is a solution to many challenges.
We cooperate with other companies, NGOs, and public authorities and together with them, we look for new innovations and technological solutions for cutting down on emissions. We promote best possible practices for sustainable business in our own activities, as well as in the food industry as a whole.
Together with our suppliers we develop our requirements for suppliers and make sure that the compliance with the requirements is also monitored continuously.
We have worked on sustainability for decades, but we too still have work to do and things to improve on. That is why we continue our sustainability work as passionately, ambitiously and devotedly as ever.
We want to make the world a better place step by step, one meaningful moment at a time.
