Gunnarshögs Gård

Sweden

Gunnarshögs Gård is a family farm and has been run by the Nilsson family since 1897. In the scenic Österlen, of southern Sweden, among golden fields of rapeseed the raw materials are grown which are then processed to be sold in the farm shop and by retailers all over the country. The business has evolved from a traditional agriculture to an innovative food company with cold pressed rapeseed oil in focus. The rapeseed is grown at the farm or nearby, which gives full control over the entire production, from seed to bottle. Cold pressing takes place on the farm and is a very gentle process, which with low temperature and mechanical force, pressing the oil out of the seeds, drop by drop. This result is a rapeseed oil of the highest quality, with natural golden color and a lovely nutty taste. Gunnarshögs Gård contributes to a living countryside, sustainable development with jobs, profitable entrepreneurship and high quality food. The assortment consists of different kinds of rapeseed oils, marinades, dressings, and roasted seeds. Gunnarshögs Gård also has an ongoing project together with the University of Lund where they want to create a vegetable protein of the residual product from the oil pressing.
