Food from Finland invites you to discover the delicious Finnish Food and Beverages.
Innovative and healthy products, pure ingredients and delicious arctic flavors from Finland.
Food from Finland is a Business Finland operated program presenting Finnish food and drink industry and its high quality and naturally delicious products at the international markets.
Taste and feel the nature of Finland – wild forests, pure drinking water from thousands of lakes and food from unspoiled soil. Finland has the northernmost agriculture in the world and we produce the purest food in Europe. Finnish wild forest berries, luminous oats, natural spring water and tasty vegetables are grown and cultivated in the clean arctic air with very limited need for pesticides. Due to Finland's long and harsh winters, plants utilize the short summers, midnight sun, clean soil and water at the fullest. The result is the aromatic flavor and unique taste of Finnish food.
Pure, healthy, and delicious food makes people happy, and Finns are proven to be some of the happiest people on earth. Our secret to happiness is the Finnish lifestyle, where we care for nature and eat healthy and safe food. We want our animals to be healthy and happy too. We do not use antibiotics in meat production to boost growth, and we have an efficient food safety control system. Finland has one of the highest food safety standards in the EU.
Finland has pure water everywhere. In fact, there are a total of 188 000 lakes in Finland! So it is not a coincidence that Finland is also home for premium spring waters and beverages. Finnish ground water is said to be the purest in the world by UNESCO, and we export it to nearly all continents.
Among the world's purest, the water that flows out of the tap in Finland is also the essence of Finnish premium and award winning alcoholic products. Like our naturally delicious food, Finnish alcoholic drinks share the same untamed, unique flavors from the Arctic nature.
Finns are passionate about pure and healthy food. Our super-healthy oats are one of the corner stones of both the Finnish cuisine and food industry, and we are the second-largest exporter of oats in the world. Luminous oats lower cholesterol, keep the blood sugar level low, and support health.
Finns are also world leaders in nutritional expertise, with vast expertise in catering to special diets and offering functional, gluten- and lactose-free foods.
