On the 10th of June, an online meeting was held on behalf of Eldrimner and the topic was food crafts in Sweden and various kinds of information related to it.

Eldrimner is a national center for food crafts and a knowledge center for small producers in Sweden. Eldrimner holds courses on a variety of food crafts, such as sausage making, sourdough making and cheese making. Eldrimner also holds an annual food craft competition where producers receive a professional evaluation of their products and those who excel in recognition that they can use in their marketing work. Eldrimner has been very successful in increasing the professional knowledge of small producers in Sweden and increasing the way and respect for food crafts. There is a lot we in Iceland can learn from Eldrimner and it is interesting to hear people talk about their experience of the job.

The meeting took place in English and in the player below you can watch a recording of the meeting in its entirety.

The meeting was hosted by Slow Food in Iceland, Matís, the Association of Small Food Producers and Vörusmiðja Biopol.
