METTÄ = A traditional Finnish word for forest
METTÄ is born out of our desire to share the pure, pristine and exciting flavours of Nordic forests with the rest of the world, to share a piece of the Nordic forest magic. We aspire to do this in the best possible way, sharing only the highest quality, completely pure ingredients in their natural form with nothing added to them and providing them in a sustainable and responsible manner.
You may know us from our roots at Helsinki Wildfoods
, our collective where we began this journey by rediscovering the the delicious and nutritious natural foods from our forests. Welcome to continue this story with us at METTÄ.
So why are we do keen about Nordic ingredients? Because here in the Nordics, we are lucky to hold home to the cleanest nature in the world. We have an abundance of natural superfoods that grow from the cleanest soil, fed by the cleanest air and water and are strengthened by the midnight sun. This makes them that extra bit great, packed with nutrients and flavours.
Wild food is so much more than just weeds. It is a lifestyle that invites you on a journey to a wellness oasis that lurks in our backyards, filled with superfood and nature’s wonders. Wild foods is a hobby that flavours and nourishes your home cooking. In addition, it nurtures your body naturally with functional exercise and relaxation – wildfulness. Through our Helsinki Wildfoods collective, we also offer wild herb courses, e-books, webinars and all kinds of content related to pushing this wild food revolution further!
