A strong foundation for sustainability

With 11 million customers visiting our stores every week, Salling Group has a major influence on everyday life and the development of society. We have two core priorities where we see a particularly great potential for shaping society in a sustainable direction: climate and health.

A strong foundation for responsibility

At Salling Group, we take responsibility for shaping society in a sustainable direction, and based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we prioritise areas where we see a particularly great potential to make a difference.  As Denmark's largest retailer, we are constantly looking to create more sustainable and climate-friendly solutions with a special focus on food waste, plastics and waste. We also work as one of the country's largest employers to create job opportunities so that everyone has the opportunity to make a difference in the labour market. Finally, we are working on activities to make it easier for our customers to make sustainable choices in their daily lives, including through a wider range of animal welfare products.

Trace your tuna

When you buy tuna in Bilka, føtex and Netto, you can see the origin of the product. By typing in the unique number found on the individual tin, you can see in which area of the world your tuna was caught, which sort of tuna it is, which catching method was used, the name of the boat and identification of the captain.
