Risks and risk management

Like all business activities, Axfood’s business is exposed to risks. Risks are something that can affect Axfood’s operations negatively. Managed properly, however, they can also add value. How risks are managed is therefore of great significance. Axfood breaks down risks into operational, strategic and financial risks.

Operational and strategic risks include for example risk for disruption in the logistics chain, climate and environmental risks and the risk for labour market conflicts.

Axfood is exposed to financial risks in the form of financing and refinancing risks, liquidity risks, interest rate risks, currency risks and credit risks.
