Every year the company sells around 60000 tons of crispbread in 40 countries. The Swedes eat more crispbread than any other people in the world almost 4 kilograms per capita. Wasa's largest markets outside Sweden are the other Scandinavian countries and Germany closely followed by Poland the Netherlands France and the USA. However crispbread as a category exists almost everywhere. Wasa which has a staff of around 950 people has been owned by the Barilla Group since 1999. The head office is in Stockholm Sweden and the company has production facilities in Filipstad in Sweden Celle in Germany and Hamar in Norway. The name Wasa has its roots in an old Swedish word vase which means sheaf. Since the 14th century the coat of arms of the first king of Sweden Gustav Vasa and his family has featured a stylized sheaf. Gustav Vasa was sometimes called the "Rye King". No-one knows exactly where the name comes from but it may have its origins in the fact that the king demanded that his people pay their taxes in the form of rye a valuable commodity at the time. For many years Wasa used a picture of the Rye King on its packaging. This was later replaced by a royal crown above the name. Today the crown has been evolved to a crown-sheaf which represents the origins of Wasa. It also lends a royal air to crispbread something which is also reflected in the fact that the company has been appointed purveyor to His Majesty the King of Sweden.

Wasa bread light rye for yeast allergies
December 11, 2012
"I eat Wasa light rye instead of bread. I can't eat bread because of the yeast and Wasa light rye satisfies my requirements. I can eat it with peanut butter or with my eggs over easy in the morning. And it tastes great."
"This is a good cracker for those who like the taste of less rye. I prefer the hearty rye, but this one is okay for a change."

Review 3 for Wasa Crispbread Light Rye -- 8.8 oz
September 27, 2011
"If you're looking for a lightweight bread to spread nut butters, jams, hummus, etc. this is it. You don't have to feel guilty with extra chemicals in the ingredients. They are simple and few ingredients that make this a healthy alternative to many breads out there."
