GEOfood as Nordic project

GEOFOOD PROJECT IN A GLANCE

The idea born in the frame of KreaNord project. Magma Geopark in Norway lead the idea together with Odsherred Geopark in Denmark, Rokua Geopark in Finland and Rejkyanes Geopark in Iceland

Main goals were:

•To create common criteria for developing food experience in the UNESCO Global Geoparks.
•To boost local food as unique Geopark experience.
•To valorize the local SME´s in the food and tourism sector in the Nordic Countries.
•To promote the creative industries, like local chiefs and local video makers.
•To expand the tourism offer within specialized packages focused on local food.

At the end of the project  the consortium got approved the GEOfood criteria by the European Geoparks Network as official criteria to develop local food within UNESCO Global Geoparks. 

GEOFOOD AS BRAND FOR LOCAL PRODUCTS and RESTAURANTS

GEOfood is expanding and several UNESCO Global Geoparks adopted the brand

 to promote the connection between the unique Geoparks's geological heritage and the local food traditions.

Branding local product and restaurant  with the GEOfood label means to sustain local communities in developing sustainable practices, keeping the connection with the soil, the landscape and the culture of the territory. 

GEOfood is also a tourist opportunity for unique and authentic  experiences that enrich both the body and the mind!
