Theme page on food published by FSD

This month’s data theme page on the Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) website features datasets on food.

For a long time, there was fairly little awareness of Finnish cuisine outside of Finland, but its appreciation abroad has grown along with the interest in simple, fresh, locally produced, organic food. The culinary scene in Finland is expanding, and many skilled chefs have reinvented traditionally humble Finnish dishes and made them fit to be served in Michelin-starred restaurants.

However, the everyday eating habits of the public at large may tell a different story altogether. Data on our new theme page shed light on the eating habits, diets, and nutrition of Finns as well as their views on food aid and consumer choices relating to food. New data theme pages will continue to be released every month until the conclusion of FSD’s centenary project and the publication of the final centenary theme page entitled Life in a 100-year-old Finland on the eve of Finland’s Independence Day, 5 December.
