The Kavli Trust owns the dairy product company Q-meieriene and other Kavli businesses in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Great Britain. Ownership is managed through Kavli Holding AS.
Profit that is not used to cover operating expenses and business development goes to the Kavli Trust, a trust that awards funds to good causes within humanitarian work, research and culture.
The majority of the funds we allocate go to projects in the four countries where our companies operate. The rest goes to development projects in impoverished countries.
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, health, and different forms of entrepreneurship.
Our goal is to contribute to making a difference in the lives of individuals, in their local communities and to society as a whole.
