The New Nordic Food Programme II's recommendations regarding the use of Nordic Food Diplomacy

  • Meals served at official meetings in the Nordic countries, as far possible, reflect the seasons and the region where the meeting takes place.
  • Meals served at international events convey aspects of Nordic values.
  • All ingredients are produced according to sustainable principles.
  • Food and meals are inspired by traditional Nordic food culture, but also show a new approach to food and innovative thinking.
  • Food and meals are developed through interaction with the cultural sector. Snacks and coffee breaks reflect the Nordic culture.
  • Food and meals at all Nordic meetings and events are tasty, healthy and nutritious.
  • Values associated with the food and the story behind it should be taken into account as a means of inspiring those who attend our events.
