Arctic Food lab — Local flavours and experiences
Northern Finland’s short but intensive summer ripens our local ingredients. Arctic Food Lab is a program that brings forth the ingredients that have grown under the Oulu2026 region’s Northern sky, and the uniqueness of traditional food born under arctic circumstances. We want to offer local and international guests Arctic Food Lab experiences that cannot be experienced anywhere else.
Arctic Food Lab brings together those operating in gastronomy and food culture in the Oulu region and celebrates Northern cuisine and gastronomy. Food is not just nourishment but a way to provide experiences and demonstrate hospitality. Arctic Food Lab creates images of clean arctic nature and its ingredients that have been refined with local know-how into high-quality products and services. Local food supports sustainable development and achievement of climate goals.Read more
