This is Millum

Millum is the largest procurement system for hotels, restaurants and canteens in the Nordics. Every year, orders worth more than 10 billion kroner pass through the system we have developed. With more than 16,000 users a day, we are getting better all the time, thanks to our close collaboration with all of them. 


That is why we say: A good deal, systematised!


We understand the food service industry

Ever since we started up in 2002, we have worked exclusively to supply and optimise procurement systems to make life easier for suppliers and buyers in hotels, restaurants and canteens.

A procurement system developed with and for our customers

Right from the start, we have been concerned to meet the needs of the industry. That means both the people buying and those supplying and selling. That is why we have worked closely with customers to develop the system and add functionality all the way through. A job that continues today and which will never be finished.


First complete procurement solution


Millum was founded in 2002 by Bjørn Anskau, Knut Øksby and Roberto Padin. The idea was to develop a system to enable hotels, restaurants and canteens to order everything they needed from their chosen suppliers. Millum is now Norway’s largest procurement system and is used by food service outlets all over Norway as well as in Sweden and Denmark.




We do not like to take sides. We don’t want to, and we get nothing out of it. Our dream is to provide a procurement solution which is secure and efficient for both buyers and sellers. We are a marketplace for the catering sector which is simple and easy to use.


Norwegians and neighbours


Norway is a long thin country with high mountains and deep valleys. Small towns and big cities. All of them are home to food and drink producers, restaurants and hotels or big companies with canteens. If we can provide a procurement solution to satisfy all of their needs, requirements and procedures, we are convinced we can do it anywhere.
