Welcome to a new episode of ‘My Dear Kitchen in Helsinki’ podcast. My guest on the podcast today is Bettina Lindfors, a project manager for the New Nordic Food Programme. In this episode, Bettina and I talked about the New Nordic Food Manifesto, published in 2004 and signed by chefs from all the Nordic countries. We discussed how the manifesto contributes to the sustainability transition of the food system, what its social and political impacts are, and how it changed the food scene in Finland and other Nordic countries. In the second part of the interview, we also talked about the food system problems in general and specifically in Finland. At the end of the episode, Bettina has a question that will make you think about your role in tackling the food system issues. We look forward to reading your answers as a comment on social media channels.
