The Kavli Trust owns the dairy product company group Kavli with Primula Cheese, Q-Meieriene and other Kavli businesses in four countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland and United Kingdom. Our ownership is managed through Kavli Holding AS.
As the sole proprietor of the Kavli Group, the Kavli Trust makes sure that every pence of profit that isn’t reinvested into creating new flavours goes to supporting charitable work.
The Kavli Trust is the owner who makes a difference by not only giving a part of the profit, but all of it for good causes.
Since 2012, we have proudly donated 652 million Norwegian kroner to good causes, with 2019 seeing a record-breaking donation of £10.2 million — all thanks to you and your love of cheese.
The majority of the funds, 70 percent, are allocated go to projects in the four countries where our companies operate. The remaining 30 percent is allocated to projects on health, education and entrepreneurship in a selection of countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
We support a broad spectrum of projects but prioritise some thematic areas. In the four countries where we operate, we prioritise mental health for children and youth, work for inclusion and prevention of loneliness, health research, and projects that give more people the opportunity to take part in and experience cultural events. In developing countries, we prioritise projects within education for children and youth and health.
Our goal is to contribute to making a difference in the lives of individuals, in their local communities and to society as a whole.
