Finland is home to naturally delicious, pure and safe food. Our geographical location at the northernmost parts of the globe, guarantee exceptional circumstances for food production such as cleanest air in the world, the best reserves of groundwater in the world and the wealth of light during the growth season.

Regions of East and North Finland collaborate on joint smart specialisation goals to promote sustainable use of natural resources in the regions and to promote growth and well-being in the entire East and North Finland. This webinar showcases the success stories from ENF to foster sustainable food production.

This webinar is an official partner event of the EU Green Week 2021.
