Carlshamn margarine available for FOODDUCK® spread dispensers in Sweden

According to Carlshamn’s philosophy, everyone should have a chance to enjoy the pleasures of life. Therefore, Carlshamn has developed a margarine that is also suitable for FOODDUCK® spread dispensers. “Carlshamn 3 oljor” brings together the good qualities of rapeseed, shea, and coconut oils, and the combination of these vegetable oils creates a balanced and full-bodied taste to the spread. “Carlshamn 3 oljor” is milk-free, lactose-free, soy-free, preservative-free, and vegan. Thanks to this, there is no need to offer customers many different options, as this spread is suitable for nearly all diets. Fantastic, isn’t it? Like the rest of Carlshamn products, this margarine is completely plant-based.

The history of Carlshamn dates back to 1994 in the Swedish town of Karlshamn, where the trademark was established. Over the years, the Carlshamn selection has included margarines, ice creams and various plant-based drinks and oils. Currently, it consists entirely of plant-based products with rapeseed oil as the main ingredient. Carlshamn margarines are of top quality and meet the high demands of customers and consumers. It is important for the company to maintain – and exceed – the level of quality familiar to customers. The work is in safe hands – “Carlshamn 3 oljor” is produced at the company’s plant in Finland, which has more than 60 years of experience in margarine production and product development.

The FOODDUCK® spread dispenser is a Finnish innovation launched in 2014. The devices have already established themselves in hundreds of school canteens and at lunch tables all over Finland. In Sweden, operations and equipment deliveries started in early 2020, and dispensers are already in use in several municipalities from southern Sweden to Gällivare. 

“It was a natural option for us to start a company in Sweden and start international operations in our neighbouring country. There are a lot of similarities between Finnish and Swedish school meal cultures. In Sweden, too, our hygienic and sustainable solution has been welcomed as a very interesting product, especially for school catering,” says Timo Sorsavirta, CEO of Foodduck.

To make it easy for customers to get started, we have an experienced sales team in Sweden, through which you can source both FOODDUCK® spread dispensers and “Carlshamn 3 oljor” margarine. Foodduck also has its own team in Sweden to help customers with all practicalities.

The hygiene of the FOODDUCK® dispenser is a major advantage – even more so during the pandemic. Because the spread dispenser operates fully automatically, the diner never touches the device or spread. The device also makes it easier to cater for diners with celiac disease. There are experiences of this, for example, in the municipality of Gällivare, where FOODDUCK® devices have been in use for a year: “The idea of ​​the device is great. With it, we can serve the same spread for celiacs as the spread is not touched by hand at any stage of use, and it does not mix with breadcrumbs, for example,” says Karin Anttila, Gällivare’s food service manager.

“We’ve been really happy with the device and are going to bring it to more schools. Foodduck has been a success. Even some schools that were sceptical at the beginning are now interested in the concept and want to use the device!” she continues. The municipality of Gällivare is also changing its spread to “Carlshamn 3 oljor margarine.”

FOODDUCK® is an environmentally friendly, hygienic, and cost-effective option. Together with “Carlshamn 3 oljor margarine,” it is the perfect solution to serve spreads with style.
