KiMs Brand and Private Label Products
We want to develop brands and products which create joy and which the consumers choose, when they are in the mood for snacking. We want our brands to stand tall in the eyes of the consumer – an ambitious yet attainable goal.

In Denmark today, the KiMs brand has a market share of approximately 35% (crisps, snacks and nuts), approximately four times higher than our closest competitor. 15 out of the 20 best-selling crisps and snacks in the home market are KiMs branded.

As market leader, Orkla Confectionery & Snacks Danmark has a duty to be at the forefront when it comes to innovation in crisps and snacks. We monitor the latest consumer and market trends and are constantly working with a pipeline of new projects. The consumer shall feel safe in the knowledge that we always deliver products of the highest quality.

We want to be synonymous with fun and snacking. Our products are not meant as meals but for those precious moments of joy shared with friends and family.

Our history dates back to the early sixties

The KiMs brand name was registered back in 1963, whereas the first salted peanuts appeared on shop shelves in Denmark in 1965 under the now so well-known brand name.

Since 1971, our administration and production sites are situated in the countryside at the island of Funen, close to the city of Odense. The crisps and snacks factory has been extended and rebuild several times and in 2010, we established a new a separate nut production site.

In 2016, we added confectionery to our product portfolio when we launched KiMs chocolate and took over the marketing and distribution of Panda in Denmark (Panda is produced by our sister company in Finland). At the same time, we changed our company name from KiMs A/S to Orkla Confectionery & Snacks Danmark A/S.
