Polarbröd is Sweden’s third-largest bread producer. For almost 140 years, the company has been baking its muchloved hearth-baked flatbread and continuing to spread the century-old northern Swedish bread culture. From a small bakery in Älvsbyn, founded by Greta and Gösta Nilsson, it has grown into a business with around 400 employees. The head office and main bakery is still located in Älvsbyn, some 60 kilometres from Luleå, along with the production of the flat round bread. Polarbröd also has two other bakeries: one in Bredbyn, maintaining the tradition of hard and soft flatbread, and another in Omne.
