Our business model

A model for profitable and sustainable growth.

Bonnier Books is a conduit of the written word, cultivating and relaying captivating and insightful stories from authors to book consumers. The group encompasses publishing and retail businesses, ranging from traditional and digital-first publishing to a quality bookstore chain, a paperback retailer and a digital subscription service.

Our businesses are run independently by local management teams that are trusted to make their own decisions about daily operations. Bonnier Books offers strategic direction and manages the portfolio of businesses.

As a division of the Bonnier Group, we are a part of a cultural institution with a more than 200-year legacy. We pledge to make a positive contribution to society and minimise our negative environmental impact throughout our value chain.

Bonnier Books collaborates with authors and other creators, such as illustrators and translators, to secure high-quality literature ranging from niche to commercial titles across all segments in the market.
