Scandinavian Food – Part 3

Scandinavian Food or rather the New Scandinavian Cooking often named as the New Nordic Food, has been a huge success everywhere in the Nordic region – perhaps especially because it is democratic rather than elitist.

Typical “Smørrebrød”

Right from the start, one of the basic ideas of the new Scandinavian Food and Cooking was to involve as many people as possible in the work of defining new Nordic cuisine and its ambitions. Farmers, food producers, politicians, home economics teachers, government officials, food scientists, gourmet chefs and consumers have all contributed to its development.

Scandinavian Food as New Nordic Food, is food produced with care and with a focus on taste and diversity, forgotten varieties and breeds, old processing methods and new ideas in the kitchen. There are many initiatives underway in relation to restaurants, consumers and production.

Scandinavian Food and the New Nordic Cuisine will be what we make it together, and with Nordic resources and cultural capital, we will do our part to contribute to a better world.

In this manifesto, the Nordic chefs made it clear that Nordic cuisine can be compared with the best cuisines in the world by virtue of its taste and individuality, but also in its quest for the quality and attractiveness that are to be found in regional cuisines.

Scandinavian Food and the Nordic cuisine is not in competition with the French, Chinese or other great cuisines. Its aim is much more to counter indifference and the global junk and fast food culture which presents a threat not just to our health and cultural integrity but also to the diversity and sustainability of the planet as a whole.

“We see the Scandinavian markets as key to our global development; there is a lot of thought leadership and early adoption regarding natural products and we know that consumers are well informed about the benefits of using natural products,” says Adrian Francis Scoffham from Austria’s Pure Green Brands GmbH.

It’s a view shared by many of the show’s new exhibitors and reflects how seriously key brands within the European natural and organic products industry are taking the event’s debut at the metropolis of Malmö (Sweden’s first Fairtrade city, which has won much acclaim for its commitment to sustainability, renewable energy, and the goal of serving 100% organic food in all of its public service catering by 2020).

Scandinavian governments have very supportive policies towards organic in the food service channel,” says Marianna De Pasquale, marketing manager export sales for leading organic food producer Bioitalia. “Natural Products Scandinavia will be the first show for us in the Nordic region and we decided to attend it because, although we already produce private label products for Scandinavian companies, our own brand Bioitalia is not known in this market. Northern European consumers are more educated to organic and to an eco-friendly way of life, and we therefore expect to meet many buyers interested in our wide assortment of organic products.”

It is such a natural choice to be an exhibitor at Natural Products Scandinavia, we did not think twice about participating”, adds Karin Holmgren from Swedish wholesalers Dagsmeja AB. “It is exciting and we are really looking forward being in the midst of brands and buyers that do take responsibility, not only for our health, but also for our future”.

Lively Keynote sessions, workshops and networking meetings will run alongside the central exhibition throughout both days of the event, with full programme details to be announced over the coming months.
