Savhuset is located in the heart of Sweden, in the beautiful city of Östersund. Our products are inspired by the nature around us and the beauty of the northern life.
The soul of our products is the birch sap, a commodity that has been used since ancient times in our Arctic areas as an important nutritional supplement. The birch sap is always harvested in the spring when we need to replenish our vitamins after a long and dark winter.
50 km around Storsjön
Our birch sap is harvested from birch trees growing up to 5 km from Storsjön. Here the birch grows wonderfully, and the mineral rich soil helps the sap to be produced and create the beneficial nutrition’s and vitamins.
The deep forests of Jämtland
We find our inspiration in the forests, here in Jämtland the forest is close at hand. Its very important for us to take care of the forests in which we operate. Our methods mean that we never damage the trees when we harvest birch sap.
The Swedish chemical engineer and researcher Gunnar Jegrelius built an amazing archive for thirty years. He collected research reports, dissertations, essays, manuscripts, newspaper articles and books from the years 1700 to 1981 on more than 200,000 chemical substances and their impact on people and the environment.
The archive fell into oblivion and was eventually moved to Östersund where eco-engineer Peter Mosten was commissioned to compile an index of the archive in order to facilitate research. During the work, Mosten found a recipe written from a Swedish book printed in 1785, the recipe that today forms the basis for all our products.
