Finland - Päijät-Häme

The Finnish LL will focus on two main FPR, grain and fish. It will be situated within the local “Grain Cluster” cooperation network, composed of 82 food companies and primary producers. The capital city of Päijät-Häme is predicted to become the centre of the food industry in Finland within next few years. In addition, Päijät-Häme region is in Finnish “Waterland” region where a quarter of the surface area is waterbodies with extensive natural fish stock.  The LL has as objective to improve the accessibility and sufficiency of SI, considering that there is a high need for recycled and renewable SI due to the lack of other organic fertilizer sources such as manures and a steep rise of the prices of fossil fertilizers.
