Virtual Nordic Talks: Tastemakers: Effecting Change in Food Processing, and Packaging
Jun 12, 2021
2:00pm - 3:00pm PST

The National Nordic Museum hosts a series of Nordic Talks, sponsored by the Nordic Council of Ministers, focused on the theme of food security and sustainability. During these talks, leading innovators and advocates for sustainable food practices and conservation will discuss solutions to contemporary issues in the areas of fine dining, food processing and packaging, and agriculture. The Museum has invited leaders from the Nordic region and the State of Washington to participate in this series of talks which will increase awareness and inspire positive actions for a more secure and sustainable world.

This series of talks consists of thematic panels led by industry leaders from the Nordic region and the United States, and discusses clever solutions to timely problems in the areas of fine dining, food processing and packaging, and agriculture. The talks in this series will be conducted virtually.

Panel Two: Tastemakers: Effecting Change in Food Processing, and Packaging

This panel investigates how companies in the Nordic countries and the United States demonstrate their commitment to sustainable strategies to maximize growth and minimize waste. In recent years, Nordic restaurants and companies have catalyzed conversations about environmental sustainability with special consideration paid to the growth and selection of ingredients and the development of sustainable packaging. How have Nordic and American companies risen to these challenges? Among the panelists are Kaisa Jaakkola, Senior Manager of Finnair’s Kitchen Oy; Stephanie Lentz, Founder and CEO of Scoop Market Place in Seattle, WA; and Hjalti Thorarinsson, Vice President of Software at Marel, a leading global provider of advanced food processing equipment in Iceland. The conversation is moderated by Christopher Burk, an Advisor for Sustainable Growth and Commerce at the Embassy of Finland in Washington, D.C.
