PART OF BAMA GRUPPEN AS

BAMA is a proud part of BAMA Gruppen AS, the Nordic region’s leading name in fruit and vegetables. Founded in Norway in 1886 by Christian Matthiesen, in 1905 the company became the first to import bananas to Scandinavia. Today BAMA Gruppen AS is a global organisation for the import and wholesale distribution of fruit, vegetables, processed fresh products and flowers. The Group takes a strong stand for ethical trade, climate and environmental issues. It supports the improvement and development of working conditions in those countries in which it has a presence, and it works to inspire healthy lifestyles through increased physical activity and an increase in the consumption of healthy fruit and vegetables.

Everyone supports one another in day-to-day work and all pull together in a spirit of cooperation and a climate of clarity and transparency.

The raw ingredients are carefully checked on arrival, and an uninterrupted cooling chain and optimised handling procedures ensure that the product remains fresh throughout the process. Our range of convenience and plant-based foods is produced in Lindesberg, some 40 kilometres north of Örebro. We are especially proud of this facility, which is the only one in Sweden for the production of plant-based foods.

The facility already has a very low impact on the surrounding environment, and we are working actively to further reduce our energy and water consumption.
