We are smarter, stronger, better together. That is the insight and starting point for the ambition to find new ways of working and innovating inside Lantmännen. This year’s Greenhouse Program, themed Circular Futures, invites you to rethink food production, from grain to finished product.

What is the Greenhouse?

Lantmännen's Greenhouse is our platform for open innovation for those who want support in developing an innovative business concept into a profitable business.

Apply to the Greenhouse

We have now closed the intake of ideas for the challenges. If you are interested in participating in any activities, email someone in the Greenhouse team. Contact details are at the bottom of the page!

Important dates and facts

We are now in the middle of our 2023-2024 Program "Circular Futures". More information about the next program will come after the summer of 2024. 

What happens to the received ideas?

All the received ideas are read and evaluated by cross-functional teams representing different businesses and Group R&D during November.

Among the received ideas, Lantmännen senior management will choose 5-10 most potential internal ideas to be further developed in the Accelerator in the spring by small cross-functional teams. The cross-functional teams will be set in January together with senior leadership and supervisors from respective businesses. When you are sending in your idea, you can say if you would be interested to develop your idea further in Accelerator - or if you just want to send in your brilliant idea for others to develop further! Read more about last year’s Accelerator here.

And maybe not some of the great ideas don’t need further development in Accelerator but are ready or almost ready to implemented in some parts of the business as such or through the local investment processes. All ideas are stored for possible use!

All, who have sent an idea to the open call, will get a reply in December.

Activities 2023-2024

Participate in a series of events, workshops and gatherings where we together create smart solutions to some of the industry's biggest challenges.
