Sustainability, Health and Quality
A Friendlier Wheat
Our “Friendlier wheat” has up to 20% less climate impact than the average wheat supply in Sweden. Kungsörnen’s friendlier wheat is grown according to Lantmännen’s new cultivation concept "Climate & Nature". Since end of 2015, 70,000 tons of wheat with lower environmental impact has been harvested from Swedish farmlands around the country. Through this concept, we have managed to decrease emissions of carbon dioxide by 6,000 tons.
Great Taste - Without Added Sugar
Our new Granola from AXA - a roasted and crunchy muesli full of flavor - actually has no added sugar. It is made from oat, rye and barley, which are naturally rich in minerals. Enjoy a luxurious breakfast!
We Create Energy from Residues
In our plants in Järna in Sweden, we produce breakfast products based on Swedish oats. The largest residue from our production - oat husks - is not considered as waste in our factories.
Instead of using fossil fuel in our boilers, we convert the husks to energy, which is used in production. Thanks to this, we reduce fossil carbon emissions by about 7,500 tons per year.
The energy created from oat husks is not only used in our production, we also use it to heat up 1,400 households in the neighborhood of the factory in Järna.
The challenge of the 21st century is to ensure that everyone has access to enough resources, while collectively we live within the ecological means of this one planet. We all need to eat healthy and reliable food, produced with consideration to the environmental impact. Sustainable cultivation is about addressing the issues where the impact and potential is the greatest.
RSPO Certified Palm Oil
To ensure a responsible palm oil production, we only purchase RSPO certified palm oil. We are actively working on the acceleration of the transition to this responsible sourcing, together with colleagues in the industry and interest groups.
In order to slow down the climate change and secure productive farming in the future, the climate impact of food production has to be reduced. Being a leading food company, this is of course an extremely important issue for us.
