Supervisory Board

In accordance with Atria Plc’s Articles of Association, the company has a Supervisory Board elected by the Annual General Meeting. The Supervisory Board consists of a minimum of 18 and a maximum of 21 members, who are elected for a term of three years at a time. The Supervisory Board elects a Chair and a Vice Chair from amongst its members for a term of one year at a time. The Supervisory Board meets four times a year on average.

The duties of the Supervisory Board are specified in the Limited Liability Companies Act and Atria’s Articles of Association. The key duties of the Supervisory Board are as follows:

  • Supervising the company’s administration by the Board of Directors and the CEO.
  • Providing instructions to the Board of Directors on matters that are of far-reaching consequence or important in principle.
  • Submitting its statement on the financial statements and the auditors’ report to the Annual General Meeting

The Board of Directors has deemed all members of the Supervisory Board to be dependent of Atria, as they are either full-time farmers who have – or are members of the operative management of a company that has – a customer, supplier or cooperation relationship with Atria Group that is significant for the entrepreneur/company in question.


The Board of Directors has deemed that the members of Atria’s Supervisory Board who are also members of the Board of Directors of a significant shareholder (Itikka Co-operative or Lihakunta) are dependent of a significant shareholder. Membership of the Supervisory Board of a significant shareholder alone has not been deemed to constitute dependence.
