About Food for Progress

Driving a new food logic

Food for Progress is driving a new food logic. We work hands on with climate, health and food security. Co-creation is our core value and global impact our goal. Our Brands: Oumph! and Beat .


We will soon be 9 billion people. And we only have 1 planet. We need to eat in a way that allows us all to thrive within the planetary boundaries. But we do not do that today. What we eat today, and what we should be eating, for the sake of ourselves and the planet, are two different things.

That is stupid! Our solution is action.

We love co-creating with partners who want the same thing as we do. When we open up, share risk, opportunities and resources, we multiply our common leverage. For us, it is a methodology for driving innovation and sustainable growth. And maximizing impact.

Our operations are structured into four divisions; Our Brands, Joint Venture, Private Label and Trading. We have two production plants, both certified by the BRC standard and for KRAV/EU Organic production. One is focused on producing a wide range of plant based foodstuff. The other is an ice cream plant, and in transition to being fully plant based. Both are situated around 100 km from Gothenburg in the west of Sweden.

We work on a global scale. All partners involved are connecting strong existing networks, logistic infrastructures and market know how to enable strong local impact on each market. We see this as the foundation for reaching the common goal of One Planet Food at the right speed.
