The new operating model is based on Operations, Concepts and Categories, Market Areas -Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Baltics, International & Biotech – as well as Business Services.

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.”
