Fazer invites municipalities to discuss best ways to cooperate
Fazer wants to further develop its food service offering to municipalities and the future regions in Finland. Currently, Fazer operates in around ten municipalities. During 2018, Fazer will organise discussion events with municipalities at its visitor centre in Vantaa and in some other localities to explore possibilities for new kinds of partnerships between the public and private sectors.
Fazer Food Services, part of the family-owned company Fazer, is the leading food service company in the Nordic countries. Fazer has nearly 1,200 restaurants in the Nordic countries; 600 of them are located in Finland. Its customers include companies, societies, kindergartens, schools and serviced accommodation for the aging. Fazer Food Services cooperates with government offices and municipal institutions, among others.
Fazer wants to have an active dialogue about how it can support municipalities and regions in producing food services with high quality and good cost effectiveness. Growth in the public sector is part of Fazer’s strategy for the next few years.
“We want to understand even better how the public and private sectors can work together in a way that benefits the municipalities and tax payers. We are engaged in active dialogue with many municipalities and future regions in Finland,” says Jaana Korhola, Managing Director of Fazer Food Services Finland.
In January, Fazer will invite several specialists and decision makers from Southern Finnish municipalities to discuss new partnerships between the public and private sectors, as well as developing services for the future. The event will be held in the Fazer Experience Visitor Centre on 30 January. During 2018, Fazer will go on to organise discussions in events in different parts of Finland.
“The ongoing health and social services reform in Finland will fundamentally change the way municipalities produce health and social services, and this is the time to examine the best practices of the municipalities’ customary ways of operation and needs for change, and to discuss new kinds of opportunities,” says Jaana Korhola.
