Over the past 10 years, the Nordic governments, through the New Nordic Food Programme have collectively taken a new approach that seeks to change the food culture and consumption patterns of their people. Government policies played a key role in promoting a new and more sustainable Nordic cuisine to international fame but others played their part including world renowned chefs and the private sector. Through public-private partnerships, product innovations and reformulation these new ideas are being incorporated in everyday life in the Nordic countries.
