I trust the local

Securing local food production is our shared mission. Smart practices ensure that you can always rely on the quality, responsibility and safety of the food produced in HKFoods’ home markets. HKFoods’ familiar brands and great-tasting food have been an important part of Northern Europeans’ food moments for over a hundred years. Now we all need to pull together so that we can continue to enjoy local food for the next hundred years. Let’s work together for the future of local food!


5 tips on what I can do for the local food chain


1. Prefer local branded products

Local branded products use local raw materials and contribute to employment, the local economy and food culture.


2. Choose local meat

You can eat meat produced in Finland and Denmark with good conscience as its production methods are strictly regulated and responsible. In doing so, you are supporting the vitality of the local countryside.

3. Reduce food waste

Think about the right portion size and amount of food in advance. Wasted food is an unnecessary burden on the environment and your wallet. For example, on average Finnish households generate food waste of just over EUR 100 per person per year.
