Ciudad de la Gastronomí de la UNESCO
Solo en inglés
Östersund was designated UNESCO City of Gastronomy on 20th July 2010.
This rural, sparsely populated region in Sweden is appreciated for its gastronomic culture, which is based on locally produced sustainable food following a long-lasting culinary tradition. Eldrimmer, the Swedish National Centre for Small Scale Artisan Food Processing, which supports small entrepreneurs and farmers with guidance, training support and product development demonstrates the importance of gastronomy in relation to creative industries.
Their culinary tradition tightly linked to nature and sustainable development is expected to bring Östersund’s distinctive profile as a gastronomic city to an international level and serve as a valuable asset to the Network.
