At the Haraldsby factory in the Åland Islands, which opened in 1969, over 30 million kilos of potatoes are converted into delicious Taffel snacks and Oolannin frozen potato products every year.

Sustainability is at the heart of product development in Orkla Suomi factories. All products are palm oil-free, cocoa is Rainforest Alliance certified, and factories are contributing to the circular economy.
