Chef/founder of Food In Action. Creative director and Project manager of The Great Nordic Feast.
Food and sustainability advocate Fia Gulliksson has put Jämtland, in the heart of Sweden, on the global culinary map. Fia is a serial entrepreneur and a self trained chef focused on creative gastronomy. Charged with the spirit of Pippi Longstocking and the vigour of IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad, Fia Gulliksson is a force to be reckoned with.
She uses food and culture as the tools for sustainable profits. She’s CEO of Food In Action founded by her in 2000. The company has launched a number of successful initiatives and sustainable brands that have catalysed the development of the county of Jämtland’s development and put the region firmly on the map. What’s more, Fia’s companies provide enduring social and cultural capital in rural areas, they’re debt-free, and… they’re profitable.
Fia is behind her hometown Östersund’s successful bid to become a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and the host city of the network’s annual summit in September 2016. She is the main founder of Jazzköket, an award-winning restaurant, which was voted Sweden’s No.1 Sustainable Restaurant in 2014 and the Caring Restaurant of the Year (Hjärtekrog) in 2015 by the prestigious White Guide.
