Making the trade of food transparent, profitable and sustainable.
We enable optimal and sustainable trade of food
Skira is the first and only digital marketplace for grains in Sweden. We use software to enable a resilient food production. The technical tools we provide in our platform support an entire ecosystem of food industry players to increase sustainability in the foodchain, and more specific the trade of grains.
Our mission is to increase transparency, profitability and sustainability for all Swedish farmers. By offering them an open and dynamic marketplace, we can enable a more competitive trade of food where the market sets the price.
Together we connect sellers and buyers of grains.
We believe in what we do
The future of food supply
"Skira started as a price-comparison app for farmers; providing farmers with reliable market information. Today we are so much more. Our mission is to enable an optimal and sustainable trade of grains; and for that we need to keep pivoting and reinventing what is seen as the foundation today. The future of trade will be digital and driven by consumer and producer needs where we, Skira will be the connector."

We're one of Sweden's fastest growing companies
We are challengers on a traditional market, we are agile and we have a lot of fun together!
During the whole of January we set up an office & worked from Åre, to enable a lot of fun activities outside of work and to build a tight team. We're doing even more stuff like this in 2020.
Why we exist
We need more sustainably produced food.
Fuelled by rad consumers, the UN Paris agreement, IPCC regulations, governmental and regional legislation, goals set by The Science Based Targets initiative, and demands from frameworks such as the GHG Protocol all bring a clear message - the push for sustainability accounting and improvements cannot be stressed enough.
In order to deliver and drive positive investments, the entire food ecosystem will need a scalable and technically superior ecosystem that enables transparency, modeling, and flow of information.
This is where we come in. In our opinion (which is totally unbiased) the triangle of food, sustainability, and tech is the most exciting and rewarding space to work in but also highly urgent and critical.
We need better solutions compared to how we’re currently doing things - now!
