Who we are
Bonaventura is a leading distributor of branded goods in Northern Europe. Bonaventura Nordic has offices and warehouses in 5 countries: Sweden, Denmark, Norway, the UK, and Estonia. In addition to our home markets, we export goods and have customer relations in numerous other countries in Northern Europe: Germany, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greenland, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, and more.
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.
A snapshot of Bonaventura in 2021
In Estonia, our logistics and distribution partner SMARTEN, was ISO 14001: 2015 certified in 2021. There we have also started cooperation with RagnSells on sorting and recycling of waste distribution in our warehouses.
Bonaventura is constantly on the lookout for new products with an improved formula or new products substituting less sustainable solutions. In 2021 several of our products got more sustainable packaging, using more recycled material or improving the potential of recycling after use. Palm oil has been on the agenda in Norway for several years and in 2021 we saw a continuous increase in replacing conventional palm oil with either certified palm oil or other more sustainable oils like sunflower oil.
Sustainability going forward
Bonaventura will focus on increasing the range of products and brands that offer healthier and more sustainable alternatives to our customers and ensure to an even greater degree the level of informed choices by our customers. We will develop indicators to track and report our progress in line with the requirements from Scandza. Furthermore we will run our business aligned with the Scandza governance framework and participate in all centrally organized initiatives.
