The Skåne Food Innovation Network (SFIN) is a gathering power for everyone who wants to develop Skåne into a food central for Europe. Our members and partners are companies, organizations, public authorities, universities and colleges that represent the entire chain from soil to sustenance.
The network was established in 1994 on the initiative of the business community. The background was Sweden’s approaching membership in the European Union and the increased international competition. We grew rapidly into a well functioning network with strong commitment from business, research and society.
Today SFIN works on a broad front to develop the Scanian food industry, among other things by raising the pace of innovation and processing proficiency in the business.
In parallel with this, we also work at increasing the attractiveness of the food business to young, well-educated people — a must for the development of the field.
We also want to disseminate knowledge about today’s Scanian food culture and how it can contribute to health, wellbeing and positive food experiences. Our efforts include education, public opinion surveys, theme days, seminars and so on, all aimed at both specialists and a wider audience.
In 2011 Skåne Food Innovation Network introduced the new trademark "Tasting Skåne – locally produced and carefully selected" to the market. Read more about that and our other projects in the latest annual report.
