Following a review of its operating model, HKScan, the Nordic meat group, is embarking on a partial re-organisation of its operations. The new operating model is based on Operations, Concepts and Categories, Market Areas -Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Baltics, International & Biotech – as well as Business Services. New ways of operating are intended to ensure a sharper focus on consumers and customers, improve the efficiency and transparency of the food value chain from farm to fork, and the productivity of internal processes.

Jari Latvanen, president and chief executive of HKScan Group.

The changes will entail the loss of 160 white-collar personnel, senior white-collar personnel and management across all HKScan countries. A fresh group leadership team is now in place and the new operating model will be in place on 1 June 2017.

Jari Latvanen, president and chief executive of HKScan, comments: “During the past months, we have been conducting an evaluation of HKScan’s strategic market presence, ways of working and the cornerstones of our future success. We are now on the final stretch of the path to defining our renewed strategic direction and we aim to communicate and implement it from the third quarter onwards.”

He elaborates: “The new strategic direction and operating model will together secure us a sharper focus on consumers and customers. It will also give us the leading role in the food value chain as one, unified company. By putting all these measures into effect, we will strive to improve our recipe to being more competitive and consequently more profitable.”
