The parallel company names of the new name are HKFoods Plc (in English) and HKFoods Abp (in Swedish).

“The name HKFoods will continue the company’s traditions and reflects one of the company's core consumer brands, as well as the company's industry and strategic reference. We continue our strategic journey to become a versatile food company. HKFoods is strongly Finnish at its core, but an internationally operating company," says CEO Juha Ruohola.

The company name change has no impact on the company’s iconic consumer brands, HK®, Kariniemen® and Via® in Finland and Rose® in Denmark.

The company’s new name, logo, website and email address, etc. will be introduced in stages from May 2024 after the name has been registered with the Trade Register. Other contact details of the company and its personnel (phone numbers, addresses) will remain unchanged.

The company will publish a separate stock exchange release once the name change has been registered with the Trade Register.
