Active co-operation network
Päijät-Häme is home to Finland’s largest and most diverse conglomeration of grain-related expertise. The Päijät-Häme Grain Cluster, founded in 2003, is a regional co-operation network of farmers and companies that process grain-based raw materials. Its purpose is to support the networking of local farmers and the companies of the cluster, increase co-operation between companies that process grain and promote the profile of the region’s grain expertise.
The Päijät-Häme Grain Cluster represents the entire value chain from grain farmers to industry and retail. There are two separate grain chains, the bread chain and the drink chain, that include companies where the grains are processed to consumers or further processing purposes through industry, retail and restaurants.
165 M€ total investments of the Grain Cluster companies in 2017-2023 have a significant economic impact on the companies, the entire industry and the Lahti region.
