This is a unique opportunity to generate new business contacts and share experiences between Finnish and Swedish companies in a variety of industries:

Food and Beverage

Close geographical location and cultural similarities offer Finnish companies a great environment for growing their business, but also for testing and developing the commercial concept. Finnish food and beverages exports to Sweden exceed EUR 300 million yearly.

Health and Wellbeing

Sustainable healthcare comprises several features within healthcare and hospitals and is one of the Nordic Strongholds reported in a study financed by Nordic Innovation. With massive investments into this sector in the Nordics and globally there is a large and growing business opportunity for Swedish companies that together with Finnish companies can create even more attractive offers.


How do the leading fashion companies work in the transition towards sustainability and circularity? What kind of innovative solutions are already available, and what is the role of these solutions in the fashion and textile industry transformation?
