Food you can feel good about
We want to offer food that’s delicious, sustainable and nutritionally balanced. That’s why we include a variety of more sustainable and organic options at our IKEA Restaurants and Swedish Food Markets. We’re always carefully selecting ingredients that have been certified to meet standards of environmental and social responsibility, while also adding new products to our range that are better for you.
Better environment, better life and - better coffee
IKEA coffee beans come from family farms and small-scale cooperatives in countries like Honduras, Mexico, and Peru. The coffee is both UTZ certified and organically grown without the use of chemicals and pesticides. UTZ works with farmers to improve growing methods. This helps to lower costs and increase crop quality and yields, which improves the livelihoods of farmers. Workers earn a living wage and farmers increase their income. Their children can go to school and have time for play too.
So, UTZ certification was a positive step toward better coffee, but it was just the beginning of the journey to create truly sustainable and delicious beans. Now that the 100% Arabica beans are organic too, the IKEA coffees are better than ever.
“I grow organic coffee. I don’t want to use chemicals. The environment is most important, without a good environment there is nothing.”

Enjoy a serving of veggies in a tasty ball
Our veggie balls are packed with fresh ingredients, such as chickpeas, green peas, carrots, bell peppers, corn and kale. You’ll enjoy a nutritious meal that is full of protein and nutrients. Plus, they come with a lower carbon footprint. All in all, they’re a delicious alternative to our iconic meatballs.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO SOURCING FOOD IN A RESPONSIBLE WAY
RESPONSIBLY SOURCED SALMON
Healthy and tasty fish make for healthy and happy customers. That’s why IKEA was part of a dialogue with global environmental experts to develop responsible salmon farming standards that are better for the fish and for the environment. All IKEA salmon comes from Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certified farms.
OFFERING YOU TASTY, MORE SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD
All wild-caught fish and shrimps served and sold at IKEA come from fisheries which are independently certified to Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards. When you enjoy MSC certified seafood you can be sure you are supporting sustainable fishing and protecting seafood supplies for generations to come.
WE’VE PICKED SOME GREAT ORGANIC OPTIONS FOR YOU
You can always find organic food at our Swedish Food Market, like lingonberry jam, coffee and cookies. We also offer at least one organic meal on the menu at our restaurants, as well as an organic children’s meal.
COFFEE THAT’S GOOD RIGHT FROM THE SOURCE
All the coffee that we sell in our Swedish Food Market is produced in an environmentally and socially responsible way. It’s UTZ Certified, which means it meets strict, independent requirements toensure sustainable farming standards and fair conditions for workers. You can even trace the origin of the coffee you buy at utzcertified.org/ikea.
CHOCOLATE YOU CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT EATING

NOTHING GOES TO WASTE
We’re working towards a big goal: to send zero food waste to landfill. This is just one of the ways we try to reduce our impact on the environment. So, where does all our food waste go? It is used for composting or biogas.
