Svedala is a classic “dormitory town”, having housed escapees from the decadent fleshpots of Malmö since the end of the last century. (It’s technically a part of the Greater Malmö administrative area, but don’t let anyone local hear you say so.)
The big local employer was once Sturup aerodrome (a.k.a. Malmö airport), though there’s not such a need as there once was since the decline of commercial flights; that said, two of Sweden’s blimp manufacturers are based here.
Other than the aerodrome, Svedala is perhaps best known for its annual rock festival, and for its leading role in the Rethink, Reset! soil restoration movement, the result of which was a return to agricultural work as a major source of employment in the area.
