Who we are
Present on all continents, Lantmännen Unibake is a global bakery leader. We are a nation of bakers – both proud to build on bread-making traditions in a contemporary way that matches 21st century lifestyle trends and, at the same time, humble to the fact that we are part of a history that is as old as civilization itself.
Evidence shows that stone-age people made the first breads thousands of years before farming. This makes bread one of the oldest prepared foods. Today it is one of the world’s main sources of nutrition.
Lantmännen Unibake has undergone huge changes over the years. However, the purpose of our business has never changed. It is all about spreading the joy of food. We love our business: the smell of freshly baked pastries or breads. The mouth-watering feeling and the happy melody our tummies play when we bite into a crisp, light and flaky crust, accompanied by a warm, sweet and scrumptious filling. This is what gets us up in the morning. Our goal is to reach billions of people of all ages in all countries around the globe and to make billions of tummies smile.
Building on our passion for baking and our mission to provide pleasure through food, we have a clear vision of where we are heading. We are present in multiple countries with a solid history of building in competences for many years. We’ve been operating in North America for over a quarter century.
Always hungry – a never-ending appetite for more
We built our company on a culture of entrepreneurship. Originally, Lantmännen Unibake grew through the acquisition of bakeries that were strong within their local markets. We added structure and created the foundation for the strength and scope of Lantmännen Unibake today.
We keep customer proximity, agility and accountability on a local level and add the strength of a global organization – all encompassed in our values.
Euro-Bake was founded in 1993 and started as an importer of high quality bread from Germany. In 2001, the company began baking in USA and a few years later constructed our St. Petersburg bakery to produce European-style breads.
Euro-Baked joined Lantmännen Unibake in 2008 and, over the years, the business has grown. Euro-Bake has also seen continual investment in the bakery: in 2012 a new Welcome and R&D Center was built, and in 2014 we expanded our Artisan Loaf and Bun line and invested in a re-packing area.
In 2018 we celebrated our first fully decade together! German heritage with a history of growth!
