Wheat with up to 30 percent lower climate impact
From October 2015, all wheat flour in Kungsörnen’s range is produced according to Lantmännen’s Climate & Nature cultivation programme.
The cultivation programme and the flour is the result of cooperation between Lantmännen’s owners and Swedish farmers, dialogue with our customers and extensive research and development. Approximately 70,000 tonnes of wheat from Climate & Nature has been produced annually, with a reduction of climate impact.
The consumer can now take action for the climate by choosing Kungsörnen’s wheat flour with a 30 percent lower climate impact.
The Climate & Nature cultivation concept includes 39 criteria that farmers must fulfill in the entire chain from sowing to harvest and transport, with a focus on reducing emissions and promoting biodiversity. The result is a climate impact with up to 30 percent lower than with average Swedish wheat production. Farmers who grow the wheat are paid more for the added value they deliver by using the cultivation method.
