Fuud-owned brand Beijing8 is centrally listed at ICA
STOCKHOLM, 12 Aug, 2021 08.00 CEST
Fuud, which during the first half of 2021 completed several acquisitions within Functional Foods, including Beijing8, continues to grow. The Beijing8 brand will now have a central listing at ICA starting week 39, 2021. Beijing8 is one of Europe's largest brands within the dumpling category and the listing at ICA allows the company to continue to create a nationwide presence at Sweden’s Ica stores.
Beijing8 offers slow fast food. We make traditional dumplings, tea and tasty accessories where we combine ancient Chinese food culture with modern values for ecology and long-term sustainability. In 2020, more than 6 million dumplings were sold on the Swedish, Finnish, and Norwegian markets.
Peter Blom, CEO of Fuud comments on the news:
- For several years, Beijing8 has had a good presence in stores in the Stockholm and Gothenburg area. Today, when Fuud has established a nationwide sales force, the timing is right to give all consumers the opportunity to get acquainted with dumplings as a given food alternative no matter where you live in the country. By combining intensified sales work with large marketing efforts, I look forward to catching on to a hot trend and introducing DUMPLING SUNDAY! Asian food is growing in popularity and consumers are not getting enough of these trendy dishes. From September, we therefore announce dumpling Sunday, where, like Taco Friday, one day a week is dedicated to these Asian knots. A perfect opportunity to gather the family and enjoy good and easily cooked dumplings.
Peter Blom, CEO of Fuud continues:
- Products under the brand Beijing8 are made from the highest quality ingredients, whether they are dumplings, sauces, drinks or cooking products, they all have natural ingredients with honest content that is good for body & soul. The products are locally produced and are easy to cook in just 10 minutes. It is thus a perfect food concept that suits the whole family and all occasions.
