The question is often asked whether organic or conventional is the solution to sustainable food production. Lantmännen's view is that development of both conventional and organic cultivation methods is needed.
Conventional cultivation at the forefront
Together with our owners, 18,000 committed Swedish farmers, in 2015 we took the first step towards transition of our cultivation. Climate & Nature is Lantmännen's program for Farming of the Future and contains concrete and measurable activities for biodiversity and reduced climate impact. The grain grown according to Climate & Nature result in a reduced climate impact of up to 50 percent for the harvest of 2023, compared to the average grain grown in Sweden in 2015.
Organic from field to fork
Organic farming shows a way towards thriving food production without the use of unnatural chemical crop protection. The organic farming demands more varied cultivation, which often is positive from an environmental point of view. Lantmännen is a major player in the ecological grain value chain on the Swedish market – from agri inputs, feed and grain to food products – and one of the largest member companies in KRAV. The organic offerings are therefore of big importance for Lantmännen's work towards a sustainable production of food from field to fork.
