Environmentally friendly and ethical production
Finnish food producers fully understand their responsibility for the Finnish environment. Farming methods are based on sustainability. Finland has long been one of the leading countries in the world in terms of sustainable development. The Central Union of Agricultural Producers and Forest Owners (MTK) represents a production area that uses renewable natural resources in a sustainable and economical way.
Animal rights legislation is strictly enforced. Respect for and ethical care of livestock is of the utmost importance to Finnish producers.
Control over the environmental impact of food production is increasing. The first life-cycle assessments of the impact of Finnish products on the environment have now been published.
