Scandinavia, and Sweden in particular, produces some of the world’s best food. Go to your local grocery store and fill the basket with the most popular and common products then compare with similar items from any other countries. We can almost guarantee you that the Scandinavian products are made from better raw materials, have a higher quality, are made in a more climate-friendly way and, most importantly, taste better.
Scandinavia offers a great variety of high-quality food and drinks, delicatessen and snack products, many made with completely natural and healthy ingredients.
In the Scandinavian production of many commonly, even daily enjoyed foods, often organic and pure ingredients are used. For instance in muesli, jams or fruit and vegetable lemonades and shots, which are then made without added sugar or artificial sweeteners, flavour enhancers or preservatives.
Less commonly consumed products from the nordic region with its pure water and wild native country are sustainable food sources such as reindeer, moose and an array of wild growing berries and mushrooms. The wild Baltic salmon from the Bay of Bothnia is another natural delicacy as is the renowned and exclusive Kalix Löjrom, Sweden’s own unique golden-orange ‘caviar’.
