Personnel and farmers

We make life tastier together with our farmers and personnel. All our community earn their living from responsibly produced, tasty food. We have been operating in this way for over 110 years.

Safety and wellbeing of our personnel as our priority

At HKFoods, we are about 3,600 in Finland, Denmark and Poland. As a company, we take care of the wellbeing, safety and competence of our employees in many different ways. In safety, our motto is Safety First, and we invest in safety in everything we do with a goal of zero accidents.

We take concrete actions to promote our work community’s wellbeing and develop our operations in line with our values, because we care for our personnel. In the autumn 2020, we launched our internal Better Together programme to develop superior work, a functioning work community and the wellbeing of each HKFoods employee.

We help our farmers in the sustainable and competitive food production

Local, reliable raw materials are the basis of our high-quality, tasty products. We closely work together with our farmers to further develop production and responsibility, ensuring the competitiveness of local meat production. We have done so throughout our long history and will continue this way also in the future.

Our animal procurement is based on long-term contracts and close collaboration with the farmers. Development of competitive farmer communities is part of HKFoods’ strategy.

Through our operations, we ensure the continuity of domestic food production in all our home markets, maintain the vitality of the countryside and promote national food security.

Our products are made using local and reliable raw materials.

For our contract farmers, we provide training and guidance on animal farming and welfare, feeding planning, health care and the design of new production facilities. We offer expert help in, e.g. production development, and are involved in the development of farmers’ professional competence. One example of this work is our NextGeneration programme for young farmers.

We have also traditionally awarded the producers of the year in Finland and Denmark. The criteria for rewarding are work related to animal welfare, the development of farmers' own operations and good cooperation with HKFoods.
