Functional Foods Forum's 20th Anniversary

20th Anniversary Hybrid Seminar

Functional Foods Forum (FFF) was founded in 2002 to strengthen Finland’s competitiveness and Finnish knowledge in the topical international trend – health-promoting foods. From the very beginning, it has also been our goal to create active dialogue and collaboration with businesses.
