Finland is a significant producer and transformer of oats, and also the 2nd largest exporter of oats globally. Many wild berries are exported just as they are, but Finland is also skilled at developing berry-based products such as powders, dried berries and elixirs as ingredients to the food industry. Finnish berries are also widely used by cosmetic or pharmaceutical industries.

Finland has a very intense growing season where plants thrive with abundance of light. The cool climate helps to reduce the need for pesticides. Seasonal, high-quality raw materials have been driving innovation in Finland for generations. Today, those innovations include e.g. vertical farming under LED lights and plant-based and ’free from’ food products. For example, Finnish oats and fava beans are a source of new plant-protein innovations and other tasty and healthy food products. Backed by groundbreaking R&D, the Finnish food industry is a trailblazer also in developing lactose-free dairy products and gluten-free foods; in fact, Finnish oats are a perfect raw material for many gluten-free products. 

Animal welfare and environmental issues are at the core of Finnish food production. Finns never compromise on food safety, with traceability as a major priority. Finland aims for the most transparent, safe and responsible food chain in the world. Antibiotics are not used preventatively, and no antibiotics have been used for poultry since 2009. Thanks to a long-standing and strict salmonella control program, salmonella in food is virtually non-existent. The Finnish food industry strives for carbon neutrality and aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 75 % by 2035. Delivering sustainable food from generation to generation, Finland is all about the “smart taste of nature”.
