Natural products grown in arctic environment differ in their nutritional and bioactive composition compared to similar products from closer to equator.

Sustainable bioeconomy requires the use raw material in the most efficient way. In this project we dry to tackle the special issues related to the rural areas; high rural unemployment, high amount of natural resourses and great potential of value-adding refinging of the products. Taken together, information gained from the first-rate research into publically supported way of industry would increase the amount of local refinement of the originally high value natural resources. In addition this would produce more rural opportunities to work with more educational background in areas currently suffering from flow of young people into bigger cities.

In the end we hope to see new way of working in the community in a sustainable manner towards a greener and healthier way of living. In addition the community would be a leading example of capitalizing the research done previously into a biologically and socially sustainable economy.
