One big family
Lantmännen is an agricultural cooperative founded on the deep knowledge our farmers have aquired over generations. We make farming thrive and work together to take responsibility from field to fork.
With operations through the whole value chain from field to fork, Lantmännen is working to take responsibility for our impact on people and the environment, to develop businesses that contribute to a profitable sustainable development, and to make farming thrive.
At Lantmännen Cerealia we take our share of the responsibility for sustainability, which is about trust, care and respect. Trust, for our products - offering our consumers and customers sustainable, healthy and reliable choices. Care, about the environment - reducing the environmental impact throughout the value chain. Respect, in all our relations - building long-term relations and safe work places, both for employees and for our business partners.

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.
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.
"With sustainability as the core of our business, our aim is to make breakfast, lunch and dinner servings a profitable business for our customers by offering high quality products"
