Responsible meat

With over 100 years of experience we have the skills needed to take responsibility of our actions at every step of our value chain.

Our corporate responsibility work focuses on four areas: animal health and welfare, environmental responsibilitysocial responsibility and economic responsibility. As the leading Nordic meat and food company, we are committed to being the world's best both in animal care and in reducing our environmental impact. We take the wellbeing of our communities and people seriously.

CR focus areas

The origin of food, raw materials used, the sustainability of production methods as well as nutritional aspects, affect consumers’ food choices. In addition to animal welfare, the climate impact of meat production has been discussed extensively in recent years. We pay close attention to these issues.

We see our Nordic heritage as both a point of pride and our key asset. The strengths of our northern food production include pure and ample water resources, pure soil and air, and efficient agricultural production methods.

Our CR-themes are present in our daily actions and interactions with various stakeholders.
