Finally no Teams, but a real face to face kick off event! Join Food from Finland team on August 30th in Team Finland House in Ruoholahti.

There are four things in common with the strongest brands in the times of uncertainty: the ability to understand and forecast consumer behavior, the ability to create meaningful concepts based on that customer insight, the ability to meet customers consistently across all channels, and the ability to build own organization and culture to support goals. By focusing on these actions and encounters, you can empower your brand and become one of the future success stories.

This year we are happy to have our colleagues from global network with us (from Austria/Germany, France, India, Japan, Latin America, South Africa and Vietnam) and you will have opportunity to discuss with them.
