Fazer Food Services participating in the social discussions at the SuomiAreena event

Report this content

Fazer Food Services is taking part in the SuomiAreena public debate forum I Pori again this year from 16 to 18 July 2019. Key themes will include responsible food and future food solutions for people in Finland. This is the fifth time that Fazer Food Services has participated in the event.

Responsible high-quality food for the health and social services sector

Joint panel discussion by Fazer Food Services and the Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners (MTK), Thursday 18 July from 1 pm to 2 pm, Antinkatu stage at Antinkatu 5.

Is reindeer meat considered to be a local food in Pori? Or the traditional northern rössypottu stew in Helsinki? How can we measure quality beyond the plate? What can we do to secure responsible food services in the health and social services sector?

Panellists will discuss domesticity, as well as local food and ways of redefining the concept. Reporter Eija Mansikkamäki from the newspaper Maaseudun Tulevaisuus will be joined on stage by Juha Tenho, a producer from Ulvila, Pertti Hakanen, a politician from Sastamala, Tuomas Nurmela, Fazer’s director in charge of customer relations, and Terhi Löfstedt, regional manager at MTK.

In addition to local food, the panel will also dive into the quality criteria for public procurement in light of the results of the PowerMeals study on senior citizens living in Pori, for example. The study focused on home-delivered meals and was conducted jointly in 2018 by Fazer Food Services and the Social and Health Care Division of the City of Pori. The study resulted in significant improvements in areas such as the quality of life and the amount of sleep among the elderly.

During the discussion, the audience will be able to try a high-protein cake developed as a result of the PowerMeals study. Samples will be served by product developer and Chef de Patisserie Piia Raunio from the Fazer Culinary Team.
