#NORDICFOOD2024 is a series of vision workshops focusing on where New Nordic Food is going, and especially how far we want to go to realise the visions of the Nordic kitchen in a number of selected areas in 10 years' time.
The Nordic Council of Ministers will invite a group of leading players from across the Nordic region to discuss which activities and visions they should work on in the future.
A changing world
The world is changing rapidly and the food culture of the future is being shaped today. On a global scale we are facing major challenges with climate change, poor nutrition and malnutrition, lack of resource exploitation, growing inequality between people, cultures and between producers and consumers.
However, the Nordic Region has in many ways the basis to be one of the best and most transparent food producing areas in the world. The foundation for this lies in the Nordic social model, in our common Nordic values but it lies also in something as tangible as the Nordic Kitchen Manifesto from 2004.
The Nordic Kitchen Manifesto
The Nordic Kitchen Manifesto was conceived and formulated in 2004 in a Nordic co-operation and summarised in ten points on purity, season, ethics, health, sustainability and quality.
The six vision workshops in conjunction with #NORDISKMAT2024 will start from the kitchen manifesto's tenth point: "to join forces with consumer representatives, other cooking craftsmen, agriculture, the fishing, food, retail and wholesale industries, retail and middlemen, researchers, teachers, politicians and authorities on this common project for the benefit and advantage of everyone in the Nordic countries."
