The Food from Finland program is participating in building a sustainable food industry in Finland. We help companies to grow their exports and international know-how.
Food from Finland is proud to present Finnish food companies to international buyers in a multitude of ways and to boost Finland's image as a country producing high-quality food. We encourage companies to develop new innovations and to forge partnerships with research organizations.
The program focuses on the development and growth of the Finnish food industry and on the promotion of exports with branded products and services offering high added value. We help Finnish food-industry companies in gaining access to the rapidly changing international food markets by utilizing new innovation and business know-how and research that supports the sector's competitiveness.
The Food from Finland program offers versatile services which are linked to all the themes of Business Finland and benefit the Finnish food companies in a completely novel way. Program operations include the supporting of food-sector ecosystems and food innovations especially aimed at consumers, expanding the know-how related to branding and international business operations, encouraging extensive cooperation and concrete and efficient promotion of exports in selected target markets. Export and internationalization services are tightly linked with Business Finland’s innovation funding.
Food from Finland also implements targeted measures for a few product groups:
The Food from Finland program was started in 2014 and it is funded by both the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. We work in close cooperation with the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Finnish Food Authority, Finnish Food and Drink Industries' Federation and several other operators in the sector.
