Complex production planning at Lofbergs

Löfbergs is one of the biggest family owned coffee roasters in the Nordic region. We employ a total of around 280 staff and enjoy sales of around SEK 1.5 billion. Our head office is situated in Karlstad and we have roasting houses in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Lithuania. The company was founded in 1906 and we are today one of the world’s biggest importers of ecological and fair trade coffee. Löfbergs also own the tea brand Kobbs.


”Sourcing of coffee beans and planning our production lines is a complex task since it requires a lot of synchronization due to long lead times and fluctuating demand. We were looking for better support for our entire planning operation including Sales & Operations Planning, Demand Planning, Production Planning and Sourcing. In Optimity we found a partner with software which is adaptable to support our business as well as consultants who can help us improve our planning processes.”
