United Nordic was established in 1964 by a group of privately owned food wholesalers to conduct import of grocery products. Our purpose was – as it is today – to achieve optimal purchasing terms for our four owners through a Nordic collaboration.

The United Nordic partners today form one of the largest wholesale and retail organizations in northern Europe, with an annual total sale of approximately EUR 17,3 billion. The United Nordic owners – Dagrofa (Denmark), Axfood (Sweden)33 % of the company and NorgesGruppen (Norway) own 34 % of the company.
Since 2012 Martin & Servera is an associated member of United Nordic
