Umeå is a fantastic food town. Many of the restaurants, regardless of focus, use local produce from our part of the country – reindeer and moose, char, whitefish and whitefish roe, deer, lingonberry and arctic raspberries. Västerbottensost (cheese) Vindelnrökt (smoked pork and ham) and Brännlands Iscider (cider) are just some examples of popular trade marks from our area. Make sure not to miss any of the deals connected to Umeå Food Symposium.
