About Scandza


Scandza is a Nordic producer and distributor of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG). We own and manage iconic brands, and serve the Scandinavian, Estonian, and UK markets.

Scandza was established in 2007, followed by the acquisition of Sørlandschips in 2008 and Synnøve Finden in 2009. Since then, Scandza’s portfolio has expanded further and includes multiple brands within large target categories (1).

Scandza’s brands have a strong track record of innovation and mostly hold second or third positions in our markets.

We offer iconic Scandinavian brands

We believe that the best brands combine great taste, quality ingredients, attractive and convenient designs, as well as being sustainable. But the ultimate test will always be whether we are proud to serve our food to our kids.


Bonaventura is a wholesaler without its own production, and sourcing more sustainable products in a more sustainable manner and then providing these products to our customers are how we affect environmental and social aspects in general.

In 2017, some enthusiasts in Synnøve Finden got the idea to make vegan cheese alternatives for the Norwegian market. We found out what selection there was in the shops and thought that it must be possible to make a tastier, cheaper and not least more accessible alternative. From there, the range has increased and includes  much more than cheese! 

While Go’ Vegan does not have their own production facilities, the development of the range and the different products is the responsibility of a very dedicated group of people at Scandza.
