Rikkilän Leipä

A local bakery in Lappeenranta

Rikkilän Leipä is a local bakery that was established in the village of Rikkilä in South Karelia in 1968. These days, the bakery’s products are sold in its own cafés on Koulukatu in downtown Lappeenranta, Tullitie and Kivikkokatu in Uus-Lavola. In the summer time, Rikkilän Leipä also has its own stall in Lappeenranta’s market square. The bakery’s range includes a variety of sweet and savoury baked goods, generously filled sandwiches and burgers, and confectionery such as cakes and pastries.

As a Greenreality partner, Rikkilän Leipä is committed to enhancing its waste recycling by starting to recycle plastic, setting targets for waste prevention, and annually monitoring food waste and the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. Lighting will be made more energy efficient by switching to LED lighting and installing motion sensors in indoor areas. Procurement will also pay attention to material recyclability, low-emission features, and low levels of environmentally harmful substances.
