We have our own contract farmers living within 100 km distance from our factory and producing us the best oats in the world.
This has multiple benefits:
Short and transparent supply chain.
We know our farmers, we know the conditions where our oats are growing. We take good care of our farmers by giving them instructions and guidance during growing season for optimal quality.
Contract farmers in third generations; high loyality and engagement towards Raisio.
We develop the oat varieties together with farmers.
TRACEABILITY AND SAFETY DUE TO CONTRACT FARMING
Farmers are drying the crops in their own silos and delivering to us when needed.
RELIABILITY OF SUPPLY CHAIN DUE TO CONTRACT FARMING
Supply of raw-material is secured.
Quality control from the whole chain from the seeds to the ready made products.
Our strictly controlled production line ensures that our gluten free oats are safe for gluten-intolerants and coeliacs.
With long traditions in oat production, Finnish farmers are particularly cultivating higher quality oat varieties intended for food use.
