Background

Business Area FoodTech in Munters is the global leader in climate control for farms and greenhouses. We create the perfect climate for producing food in a sustainable way all around the world – 1 out of 7 meals prepared in the world, is affected by Munters equipment. After a recent acquisition of the software company MTech Systems, we are also leading a revolution in our industry - connecting and digitalizing the farms that grow the food on our tables.

We expect to continue to grow the business, both organically and through acquisitions. As we become bigger we also need to further improve how we lead the business area, where important parts are e.g., the follow-up of financials and activities, and we are therefore redesigning our organization and setting up a team devoted to this.
