Lantmännen is an agricultural cooperative and Northern Europe’s leader in agriculture, machinery, bioenergy and food products.
With extensive knowledge about grains and our long term approach to farming, Lantmännen want to take an active role in creating a more sustainable energy and food supply.
Here we describe our business – taking responsibility from field to fork and focusing on issues that are of importance for a sustainable, profitable and thriving farming.
Grain is our main thread
Grain is at the core of Lantmännen's business. We contribute to a sustainable supply of food and energy through knowledge of grain processing and our presence all the way from field to fork. Increased growth from sustainable business requires close cooperation: development and innovation with researchers and suppliers, and dialogue with customers and consumers.
Sustainable business is about using all resources in our production efficient, and to take responsibility for people and environment in the supply chain. An important part of our business development is to offer products and services with sustainability added values. A specific focus is on activities supporting sustainable farming.
Focus on the cultivation step
A big part of the value in Lantmännen’s products is created in the field. Seen from a life cycle perspective, the greatest potential to make a difference is there through development of farming concepts with lower environmental impact, advice to farmers and new technologies and methods. Together with farmers and customers, we develop products with sustainable added values.
Our customers and consumers should feel confident that we have knowledge and control throughout the entire business and that we are doing what we can to minimize the negative impact on people, environment and natural resources. To achieve this, we collaborate with suppliers, customers, consumers and other actors.
