Apetit Group’s business segments

Food Solutions

We produce a wide range of tasty frozen vegetable products and frozen ready meals that make it easy to increase the use of vegetables. Our aim is to become Finland’s leading brand in vegetable-based food solutions. Most of our frozen vegetables are grown on the farms of our contract growers in the Satakunta region of Finland using our unique, responsible farming methods.

Oilseed Products

We are Finland’s most significant producer of vegetable oils and oilseed-based raw materials for feeds. Our oil milling plant in Kirkkonummi uses 99.9 per cent of the oilseed, producing high-quality products with a high added value for human and animal consumption.

Grain Trade

We operate actively in the grain, oilseed and feed raw-material markets. We offer excellent customer service and trading tools for buyers and sellers. Our main areas of supply are Finland and the Baltic countries, but we engage in the international grain trade. Our success is based on our comprehensive expertise and experience and our strong market knowledge.
