Fazer Bakery

Fazer Bakery’s performance was solid in 2021, and we continued to actively develop the business during the year. We introduced a new operating model in Fazer Bakery Sweden, and in Finland, we opened 17 new bakeries under our very popular shop-in-shop concept, bringing their number to a total of 120. Fazer Bakery shop-in-shops already employ a total of 700 people in Finland and the concept has been expanded to Estonia as well.

Fazer Confectionery

Fazer Confectionery achieved exceptionally strong commercial success in 2021, with good sales growth especially in countlines and seasonal products and gifts. In addition, after analysing our confectionery facilities, we identified the need to modernise our manufacturing footprint and further improve the efficiency of our production.

Fazer Lifestyle Foods

In line with our goal to become one of the leading producers of plant-based food in Northern Europe, we capitalised on consumer preference for oat products by doubling our oat milling capacity. Additionally, in December, we signed an agreement to acquire Trensums Food, a Swedish market-leading producer of plant-based drinks, to multiply our oat drink production capacity.
