Tarra Nilsson

Manager IT Support Center, Lantmännen, Stockholm, Sweden

We asked Tarra which experiences sha has brought with her from previous roles at Lantmännen: “The network of contacts and the understanding that Lantmännen is a large Group, with different focuses in different operations, but above all that we help and support each other regardless of role. I have the sense that everyone wants things to go well for Lantmännen and for our Swedish farmers – our owners. Another aspect I take with me is to dare trying new things. Lantmännen has so many exciting challenges and opportunities. You just need the courage to ask!”

Jakob Söderström

Innovation Manager, Group Functions R&D, Stockholm, Sweden

“One of the main reasons why I love working at Lantmännen is the ability to make a difference. We are a cooperative, which means that we not only focus on the next quarterly report, but that we also put emphasis on driving long term innovation throughout the entire company. Owning the value chain, from field to fork, for me means endless possibilities!”

Merle Poolamets

Business Process Manager Finance, Lantmännen Cerealia, Tallinn, Estonia

"The quality I value the most in my colleagues is an open mind - that makes the development work much easier and more enjoyable. For me it is important to talk openly with the colleagues about good things, but also “put the fish on the table”, i.e. shed light on important and sometimes tough challenges, and then together find a fun way to find solutions."

Mats Olsson

Process and Application Manager, Kotka, Finland

"According to me, the best thing about Lantmännen is our tasty and healthy products and the international work environment. The things I value the most with my job, as a Process and Application Manager at the crisp bread factory in Kotka, is the fact that it is challenging and extremely varied. If you wish to pursue a career at Lantmännen, my best tip is to have the courage to take on challenges, to acknowledge mistakes - and learn from them, to provide encouragement and to be positive."

Pauline Ädel

Group Business Controller, Group Functions, Stockholm, Sweden

“For me, Lantmännen is: the grain value chain, farmers and pride! Working for a company that works with such interesting things as bio-refineries, cultivation and food production and at the same time contributes to the profitability for Swedish farmers, is something that really suits me. I want to be proud of what my employer does and how we create value for our owners - both in the long and short term. And I am really proud of working at Lantmännen.”

For anyone who is interested in a career with Lantmännen, Pernilla’s advice is to keep your eyes open, be curious and take any chance to be involved in different forums to build your network. "When you have finally worked out what you think is fun and what you want to do, the world is your oyster at Lantmännen", she says.

Davor Zidaric

Fast food expert & Product Developer, Lantmännen Unibake

"The best thing about being a product developer in the bakery industry is getting the opportunity to develop and create new bread, and to be part of the value chain and take advantage of our grains, which finally turn into lovely portions for our customers and consumers."

"When I develop new products, I always think portion wise. You have to see the bread as a part of the whole dish and take both filling and function into account. The bread is your canvas and the filling your opportunity to create something unique."

Cristina Bucur

Marketing Manager, Lantmännen Unibake Rumania

"My best career advice is to embrace change – what worked yesterday may not work tomorrow; keep your mind open and be ready to adapt or make changes rapidly. Keep learning – there is a wealth of information available freely today so focus on what is important for you and your growth."

Jesper Burchardt Kristensen
