Representing Sweden’s third largest industry
The Swedish Food Federation (Livsmedelsföretagen) is an employer and industry organization for companies that produce food and drink in Sweden. We work to ensure that our member companies are characterized by high reputation and diversity, and have good growth, profitability and competitiveness.
The Swedish Food Federation (Livsmedelsföretagen) has about 800 member companies representing all types of food companies – small and large, with Swedish and foreign owners, family-owned, agricultural cooperatives and others. Their common denominator is that they produce food and drink in Sweden.
The Swedish Food Federation safeguards and promotes the member companies’ common interests in terms of employer and industry-specific issues.
The Swedish Food Federation is a member of the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise (Svenskt Näringsliv) and FoodDrinkEurope. The Board of the Federation consists of representatives of the member companies, under the chairmanship of Sofie Eliasson Morsink. The Director General is Björn Hellman.
