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.
CEO Tero Hemmilä’s video summarises our progress in January-March 2021: “The comparable EBIT was the best first-quarter result in six years. Comparable EBIT, rolling 12 months, rose to nearly 20 million euros at the end of the review period.”
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.
