Cederroth AB is now part of the Orkla Group and Business Area Orkla Care (previously named Orkla Home & Personal).
In August 2015, Orkla’s acquisition of the Swedish company Cederroth was approved by the competition authorities in the various countries. Cederroth has operations in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Poland and Spain. The company has four factories.
Cederroth and its various categories will be integrated with the companies Orkla Home & Personal Care (formerly Lilleborg) and Orkla Health. The combined companies in Sweden, Denmark and Finland will be named Orkla Care AB, Orkla Care A/S and Orkla Care Oy.
“In the light of our expansion in the Nordic region and increased internationalisation, we found it necessary to review the names of both the business area and the different companies. The name Care has been chosen because it is an appropriate description of the various categories in which we are present. Care reflects our concern for people’s well-being in terms of clean clothing and housing, personal wellness and health,” says Stig Ebert Nilssen, Orkla EVP and CEO of Orkla Care.
The Orkla Care business area will have a total annual turnover of NOK 6.5 billion and will operate in seven countries.
