Lyckeby Starch - Nöbbelöv

A traditional business

Sveriges Stärkelseproducenter has roots going back almost 100 years. Our economic association was formed right back in 1927, to coordinate sales and develop production of potato starch. The association’s owners are farmers in southern Sweden, and they also supply our most important raw material – the starch potato. This robust ownership structure has allowed us to build a sustainable company with strong roots in Swedish farming.

From locally grown potatoes, we produce a range of products that add value for our customers and are exported all over the world. We’re enormously proud of the advances we’ve made since 1927. And we want to continue advancing, so the next generation of Swedish farmers can continue growing potatoes for starch.

Our business concept

Our business concept is founded on buying in potatoes from owners and potato growers, processing and utilizing the raw material in the best possible way and selling the resulting products to customers in selected markets. Some of the extracted starch is combined with flavorings and/or other functional ingredients before being sold.

We have two business areas: Starch and Flavor, with the starch operations running under the Lyckeby name while flavor is managed through the companies Lyckeby Culinar AB and Kockens AB.
