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.
“The profit development within the Group was two-fold and the reasons for this are clear. I am pleased that HKScan’s key home markets Finland and Sweden continued their positive profit improvement in line with our targets. In Denmark and in the Baltics, we were not able to improve profitability in a very exceptional market situation.”
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.
Gårdsfisk specialises in fish farming on Swedish farms based on a recirculating water system. For this purpose, the company has created its own environmentally friendly farming concept. Through this cooperation, HKScan’s product portfolio will extend to include fish products.
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.
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.
