Cool and creative – discover Finland’s food culture
Finnish food experiences, naturally.
Finns appreciate simplicity and honesty in all things. The same goes for our cooking; gimmicks and frills are simply not in our nature. Everything starts with clean ingredients, and less is usually more.
Best of all, we have started to appreciate local produce and traditions more and more. Finnish modesty has taken a back seat while a healthy pride for our cuisine has emerged. Now is the time to take a gastronomic journey to Finland.
When it comes to ingredients and recipes, each region has its own delicious character. We are passionate about our food and we know how to celebrate it. We are fiercely loyal to our culinary roots and proud of our local traditions.
Although you can buy just about anything your heart desires in Finland these days, go native the next time you are here, and you will be in for a treat.
Innovative use of natural ingredients in Nordic cuisine and a laid-back atmosphere are what our food culture is all about. Finland has one of the most vibrant food scenes in Europe right now. The country also has a number of food events and festivals, just waiting for your visit.
Finland is a haven of clean and naturally nutrient- rich foods. The long summer days and cool temperatures enhance the aromas and pigments in wild berries. The real benefits of the Finnish wild berry are, in addition to its northern location, clean soil, clean air and clean water. The unique aroma and the colours are produced by flavonoids and other polyphenols. Finns scour their vast forests for these delicious treasures along with tasty mushrooms and fresh wild herbs.
