Swedish food craftsmanship
Food craftsmanship creates unique, high-quality products with a taste, quality and identity that industry cannot develop. It is a gentle, small-scale processing of mainly local raw ingredients. This results in products without unnecessary additives, which can be traced back to its origin. The hallmark of artisan food is that the human hand is present throughout the production chain. Food craftsmanship develops and refines traditional products for the consumer of today.
