HKScan’s Business Units in Finland and Sweden improved, EBIT weakened clearly in Denmark and the Baltics. In April-June, EBIT totalled 3.7 (0.1) M€ and comparable EBIT 0.7 (0.6) M€. In Finland, we made strategic investment decisions in growing meals and snacks categories. Food service sales recovered gradually. We did well in our own branded products, especially in meals, meal components and meat products.
We make life tastier - today and tomorrow
We think responsibility is as important in food as good taste. That is why we use local raw materials and focus on creating permanent, climate-friendly operating models together with our farmers and other partners. Our goal is a carbon-neutral food chain by the end of 2040.
All packaging will be recyclable by the end of 2025 at the latest. At the same time, the company will reduce the carbon footprint of packaging by 20 per cent and decrease the amount of packaging plastic by 20 per cent compared to 2019. In total, the use of plastic will be reduced by millions of kilos.
In terms of carbon sinks, the pursuit of good crop yields is the key. Carbon sequestration can be continued with so-called catch crops that continue to grow and sequester carbon after the grain harvest. Grass farming also has a positive impact on climate.
We at HKScan have taken another step towards carbon neutrality across the food chain by introducing packaging with Woodly’s wood-based plastic for our HK Maakarit artesan BBQ sausages and Kariniemen BBQ sausage range.

HKScan is determinedly looking for ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in different parts of the food chain.
We make responsible, delicious food with over hundred years of experience. For us, responsibility means genuine action throughout the value chain and continuous improvement. As a leading food company in the Nordics, we pave the way for more responsible food production.
