The everyday supplier to food professionals

From industry’s need for raw produce for processing to flavoursome ready meals for your grocery store: we have delivered first-rate food products that make everyday life work for wholesalers, industry and retail for more than 40 years.

We are Kalino

We currently have about ten staff working from our head office in Staffanstorp. We are also represented in Gråsten in Denmark. With our long experience of different parts of the industry, we understand our customers’ needs, and over the years we have established solid partnerships with suppliers of raw produce to slaughterhouses and logistics partners.

With our large international network and experienced staff, we can handle most special orders. While others require large quantities, we can also handle small orders. This allows us to be both a solid supplier and a guide to help you develop your range, whether you are a small business or big wholesaler.

Reliable taste

Skilled staff and established partners with high quality awareness allow us to deliver even and high quality. So, you can be confident that our products have the same taste, quality and consistency every time.

Reliable delivery

Predictability and flexibility are crucial to many of our customers. Our well-established supply chains and large international network allow us to deliver big and small quantities reliably and safely.

Curious

We are always curious about our customers’ businesses, as well new trends in the food world and new solutions from our suppliers. Our dedicated salespersons are always available to help you develop your range, preferably on site with you.

Our history

In 1979, Ingemar Röriksson worked for the meat cutting company Rune Lundh in Genarp. He had then worked in food since he was 15 years old. With his long experience in the industry, he saw new opportunities in the export market. Once the idea had matured, he took the step, resigned and started up on his own with the support of Karl-Hugo Holmberg and Olle Klaesson.

The company they started was named Kalino – a combination of the first names of the three founders. At the time, Kalino focused on exports of tongues, kidneys and livers to countries with greater demand than the home market. Today, Kalino supplies a broad range, mainly to Sweden and Denmark.

The majority owner of Kalino Food AB is the international group BHJ, a leading global supplier of animal proteins for the international food industry. BHJ in turn is owned by The Lauridsen Group, Inc. (LGI), a privately owned company with its head office in Ankeny, Iowa, USA.

Sustainability and social responsibility

At Kalino, we believe in common sense and a long-term perspective. For us, sustainability is primarily about protecting our natural resources, using them in the best possible way and avoiding creating unnecessary waste.

Combining this with a focus on efficient production processes, reduced C02 emissions and quality enables us to run an efficient and profitable business.

Kalino is certified according to ISO 22000. This means that we work systematically on improvements and follow up food safety activities. This gives everyone in the value chain a stronger competitive advantage and opens up new business opportunities.

Our focus on sustainability can be expressed in four principles:

1. Taking good care of the environment
2. Developing high-quality products
3. Offering the best possible working conditions for our employees
4. Investing our profits to create a long-term sustainable business
