Arvid Nordquist H.A.B.
The Nordic House of Taste and Quality
In 1884, my grandfather opened a shop supplying the consumers of Stockholm with exciting delicacies, coffee and wines – a store which quickly established a reputation for first rate service and quality. It is a privilege to be one of the third generation of Nordquists to run this company, together with 150 professional employees. Our focus remains on food and drink of the very finest quality.
However, the original delicatessen has now developed into a Nordic trading company, with local offices in Oslo, Helsinki and Copenhagen. Our turnover in 2006 amounted to SEK 1,200 million, of which territories outside Sweden accounted for around 25%. We sell coffee, food and wines to the Retail trade, Horeca market and Travel Retail.
We have been producing our very own Classic Coffee in Solna, Sweden since 1961. Maintaining our persistent focus on quality, we purchase only the very finest Arabica beans from selected countries and growers. Our aim is not to be the biggest company out there, but to produce the best, most delicious coffee. In the Retail trade in Sweden, Classic has a market share of around 12%, while in the Horeca area Classic is the second-largest brand.
Our prestige words are Quality and Tradition, and we are proud to have been Royal warrant holders for the three generations our company has existed. We strive constantly to improve upon what we do, setting our sights high when it comes to being a good employer and conscientious member of society. This is crucial to our continued success and to winning the trust of consumers in a market with such strong competition – a constant challenge on which we thrive.
