The Swedish company Wasabröd is the largest producer of crusty bread in the Scandinavian style in the world (Swedish: crispbread). The Wasabröd company has existed since 1919.
Wasa has been the largest crispbread bakery worldwide since 1919. The products are sold in 40 different countries from Scandinavia to the United States of America. In 1999 Wasa became part of the Barilla Group, along with many other bakery brands such as Mulino Bianco, Harry’s and Pavesi.
The Wasa bakeries are located in Filipstad Sweden and in Celle Germany. From these two locations, we bake crispbread and other products for a large number of countries around the world.
The largest markets for the Wasa brand outside of Sweden are the other Scandinavian countries and Germany, closely followed by Poland, the Netherlands, France and the United States of America.
The Wasa brand was originally that of a certain product, Vasaknäcke, with an image of King Gustavus Vasa. The company has both a royal crown and the peculiar heraldic cargo, the robe (Swedish: vase), which gave its name to the Vasa dynasty, used in its marketing. (The use of the letter W instead of V is an archaism in Swedish; it is not uncommon in marketing but does not affect pronunciation.)
Wasabröd produces a wide range of crispy bread. The original crusty bread is made from rye, but their different products include sesame, wheat and other grains. Just like matzo, Wasa is known for its long service life.
The company has the status of purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden.
