Finland – the purest and northernmost agricultural country in the world

Finland is well-known, both in the Nordic region of Europe and globally, for its pure nature and high level of education, among other things. Finland has achieved top scores in highly respected international education comparisons.

Finnish winter is long, cold and dark – on the other hand, the summer is short, intensive and the sun shines around the clock. Arctic conditions enhance the natural flavor of food.

People in Finland eat a lot of meat, and the country has extremely strict demands for animal husbandry and well-being. Finland makes continuous investments in ethical development of production and the quality of meat.

Plentiful high quality ground water

Finland has the most plentiful ground water supply in the world. An unlimited supply for:

  • crop production
  • animal soldering
  • food production
  • washing production plants, equipment and hands


Using water in a sustainable and intelligent way is part of everyday life for Finns.

Excellent air quality

Clean air is an intregral part of pure Finnish meat.
Finland is sparsely populated with only a small amount of polution. This means we have very good air quality and practically no fine particles in the air.

Very clean soil

Finnish soil is amongts the oldest in the world and is shaped by the ice age. The most important agricultural land is moisture-absorbing and nutritious.

Excellent air quality means there is no heavy metal residue in the soil.

Frost in the winter is beneficial for the soil: it modifies, helps crops’ water supply and prevents condensation.

86 % of farms and 89 % of the arable land is committed to enviromental aid and farms are committed to take action to take extra care of the environment. (Forkful of facts 2017, Suomen Ruokatieto)

Minimal pests

Cold winters with frost reduces the amount of plant diseases and pests. Thanks to this, we use a small amount of pesticides when compared to many other countries.
