ArktiskMat (Arctic Food) is an annual arrangement in the picturesque town of Mosjøen, located in the middle of Norway.
For one weekend in September people meet for talks, workshops, demos, lunches and dinners in and around the street of Sjøgata in Mosjøen.
Trough Arctic Food they would like to promote the craft of food production.
They thrive to raise the level of competence and knowledge with the youth, and contribute to increase the recruitment to the world of food and food production.
The team behind the event wants to achieve awareness around our resources and a sustainable approach to them.
Arctic Food is a meeting place for young and established chefs and food people, who would like a greater insight in what moves around in the arctic region.”
This year’s theme is “New Pastures”, and will between 11th and 12th of September explore how we take on new projects and opportunities, shift gears, and plant seeds for the future. The speakers will come from a range of backgrounds that intersect with food and agriculture—all bringing a different take on the central idea.
Some of this year’s keynote contributors:
Dr Johnny Drain
Anna Dulan Masing
Inger Anita Smuk
and many more
In 2019 ArktiskMat was nominated for Event of the year (longlist) at the World Restaurant Awards and Nordic Food Destination at Embla-Nordic Food Awards.
