Food you can feel good about
We want to offer affordable food that’s delicious, sustainable and nutritionally balanced. That’s why we
include a variety of more sustainable and healthier options at our IKEA Restaurants, IKEA Bistros and IKEA
Swedish Food Markets. We select the ingredients we use for our food carefully - which is also why we work
with certifications to ensure our products meet standards of environmental and social responsibility. And
we are also working hard to minimise the amount of food waste in our stores.
“Building on UTZ we also wanted our beans to be organically grown, meaning without the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides”
Jacqueline Macalister, responsible for Health and Sustainability at IKEA Food.
Help coffee growers give you 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 according to EU standards without the use of chemicals and pesticides. UTZ works to improve a number of areas for farmers, including growing methods. This helps to lower costs and increase crop quality and yields, which improves the livelihoods of farmers. Workers get a better income and farmers get a fairer share of the profits. It means their children can go to school and have time for play too.
You get great coffee, and the growers get a better income

Organic and UTZ is a good combination
Chocolate you can feel good about eating
The cocoa in IKEA labelled chocolate bars meets strict, independent requirements to ensure sustainable farming standards and better conditions for workers. Just look out for the UTZ Certified label in our Swedish Food Market. To trace the origin of the cocoa in your UTZ certified chocolate bar, visit utz.org/IKEA
Try our great organic options
You can always find organic food at our Swedish Food Market, like rapeseed oil, 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.
SMAKRIK is the newest addition to our organic food range. The farmers that contribute to the rapeseed oils follow strict standards for agriculture. No synthetic pesticides or fertilisers are sprayed on the fields – much to the joy of insects that gladly help with pollination in return. Besides preserving biodiversity, organic farming helps to maintain soil health too.
Supporting a more sustainable agriculture and better animal welfare
We believe in a new vision for the food industry. One which positively impacts the lives of people, the planet and also the lives of animals. The goal is to source fewer animals and to make sure those we do source are raised responsibly. We believe that animals should live decent lives. And that’s why we’ve been working together with experts, NGO’s and our suppliers to develop the IKEA Food Better Programmes. For all animals in our supply chain around the world - pigs, salmon, beef, dairy cattle, laying hens or broiler chickens - we aim to source from more sustainable farms where animal welfare, environmental impact, and responsible antibiotics use is a priority.
We are working hard to ensure that all of our chicken products are sourced to good animal welfare standards and meet the criteria of the IKEA Food Better Chicken Programme by 2025.
Responsibly sourced seafood
Today, 90% of the world’s fish stocks are fully exploited or overexploited – by sourcing responsibly we can ensure fish stocks won’t decline further.

Moving towards zero waste
At IKEA, we think food should not be wasted, which is why we decided to work toward big goals: By the end of August 2020, we aim to halve food waste at IKEA. And further, 90% of all food waste should be recycled or turned into a resource such as compost or biogas.
