Riemann employs 47 people and is located in Hillerød, north of Copenhagen, with state-of-the-art production facilities. The Company was founded in 1979 and has since built a leading position in its two niches.

Orkla is a leading supplier of strong brands within a broad range of consumer goods in the Nordics, Baltics, Central Europe and India.
