Food purchasing preferences during the COVID-19 pandemic in Finland 2020

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, locally and domestically produced food became more important for Finnish consumers. According to survey results from May 2020, 40 percent of the respondents said that they increasingly preferred food products made in Finland, while around one third stated that locally produced food increased in importance. Moreover, Finnish consumers were looking for healthy, ecological, and affordable eating options during the pandemic. However, the vast majority stated that their food trend preferences have not changed in the past weeks despite the COVID-19 situation.
