Good for you and the planet

Our ambition is to become people and planet positive, and to inspire and enable the many people to live a better everyday life within the boundaries of the planet. With our food range we offer our customers healthier and more sustainable food options that can help reduce their climate footprint.

From field to table – sustainability every step of the way

Our work towards creating more sustainable food systems is aligned with our work with responsible sourcing of food ingredients. We also work to reduce food waste and to use circular and more sustainable packaging. With our size and reach, we can make healthier and more sustainable food options available for the many people.

More sustainable sourcing

We want to have a positive impact on people, society and the planet. Responsible sourcing of raw materials and production plays a large part in this.

Working together to reduce food waste

The shocking truth is that 1/3 of all food is wasted. IKEA is committed to working across our value chain to reduce food waste and loss with clear goals for production and restaurants. We are also continuing to develop products that help people reduce food waste at home. Together we can make a difference.

Sustainable packaging systems

We have the ambition that by 2030 all our food packaging will be made from renewable or recycled material. We are working to develop the most sustainable food packaging that not only complies with food safety regulations but also minimises food waste and optimises material use.
