Nutrition commitment

Nutrition commitment is a Finnish operating model, which helps and encourages food business operators and stakeholders to improve the nutritional quality of the Finnish diet and to encourage nutritionally responsible practices. A target-oriented and measurable commitment provides an excellent tool for such bodies as companies and corporations to improve their own nutritional responsibility.

Vision

In 2020, everybody in Finland can have a diet that is in accordance with the food based dietary guidelines.
