What is Nordic?
The Nordic countries belong to a geographical and cultural region in Northern Europe.
The Nordic countries generally refer to Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, including their associated territories (Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and the Åland Islands).
The Nordic countries have much in common in their way of life, history, religion and social structure.
Denmark is the southernmost of the Scandinavia nations. In Denmark there is a high level of income equality, and together with New Zealand, Denmark is the country with the lowest perceived level of curruption in the world.
Danes are considered the happiest people in the world,
Danes value organic food very high. Denmark has a long tradition for organic cultivation and Denmark has the world´s highest organic share and the most well-developed organic market. Hence, the Danish consumers are the most pro-organic consumers in the world.
Over the last decade, there has been a resurgence in Nordic food culture. The concepts New Nordic Food and the Nordic Kitchen have become known all over the world for a food culture that builds on the qualities of our region; pure, simple, and safe food, produced to a high ethical standard.
In Denmark breakfast is basically the most valued meal. The Danes take their time to eat breakfast slowly at home, with a coffee or a tea to really savour the experience.
Their breakfast is wholesome. A Danish breakfast often consists of cereals (e.g. muesli) or oats.
Oatmeal, yoghurt or your favourite plant-based drink (soya, oats or rice) is easily made more nourishing with muesli and fresh or frozen berries; e.g. blueberries and raspberries.
Supplements such as rosehip powder is mostly taken in the morning on yoghurt, in a smoothie or with your favourite plant-based drink or juice.
Danes consider breakfast as the kick-start of the day.
