Hemköp – passion for food and inspiration

Hemköp offers a broad, attractively priced assortment with a rich offering of fresh products. Group-owned stores, retailer-owned stores and e-commerce aim to inspire good meals in a simple and well thought-out manner.

Hemköp takes its starting point from the joy of food that is good both for people and the world around us. To ensure that customers feel confident about the food they buy, Axfood offers a wide selection of sustainable products that are chosen with care.

Joy of food and inspiration

At Hemköp the spotlight is on the joy of food that is in season both in stores and through its e-commerce channel. Hemköp strives to always offer customers a wide range of organic and vegetarian products. By sharing its inspiration for food, Hemköp strives to make it as easy as possible for customers to navigate right in the recipe jungle, the puzzle of everyday life and among new food trends, in their daily lives as well as for more festive occasions.

Sustainability a guiding principle

Hemköp has worked actively with sustainability since the 1980s. Today Hemköp sells only organic bananas, Fairtrade Certified roses, and eggs from free-range hens. Hemköp was the first food retail chain in Sweden to stop selling fish and shellfish from threatened stocks.

E-commerce offers value for money

Hemköp has been offering e-commerce since 2016, enabling customers to order products for in-store pick-up or home delivery. Hemköp also offers pre-packed grocery bags with pre-defined dinner recipes. These include only farm-fresh ingredients, a large share of organic products, fish and shellfish from sustainable sources, eggs from free-range hens and Swedish meat.
