You have to be brave and take bold steps when the time is right. Foodwest operates nationally – and in the future, we hope internationally – but our home is Seinäjoki, in the heart of the food province. Here, there are years of wide ranging experience from developing all aspects of the food chain. It is wonderful to be a strong link in this chain.Karri Kunnas
