Unique range

Idesta combines a unique range with a burning interest in constantly making working in the kitchen easier, quicker, safer and more fun. For over 90 years, we have developed products and methods that have had a significant impact when it comes to working in the kitchen. Worth mentioning, for example, is the introduction of the Gastronorm standard in Sweden in 1971. The level of quality of tins and containers from Idesta has always been seen as an industry leader.

We also have the opportunity to offer high-quality products from our sister company SDX® which has manufactured transport boxes for hot and cold food since 1969.

In this way, Idesta can offer the market’s widest range in kitchen equipment where the common denominator is quality and extensive experience.
We also serve as advisors and experts to consultants and kitchen managers when delivering entire kitchens, where our specialist knowledge contributes to creating well-functioning and rational kitchens.

Personal service

With our extensive history, we know that shortcuts in terms of material selection, quality control or delivery reliability often backfire many times over. We take responsibility for the products we sell and the relationships we establish. However, should anything go wrong, we are always there to resolve it as quickly and painlessly as possible. You can be safe in the knowledge that we have existed for more than 90 years, always striving to make your job in the kitchen easier and safer. And not least to give you the best conditions to serve well-made and tasty food to your guests.

All sales take place through leading retailers in Scandinavia
