Lived in Sipoo for 20 years Antti Korpiniemi is amazed to hear the news.

“It’s a bad thing, both in terms of employment and primary production. It is always sad when domestic production stops. In the future, we have to look even more closely at the fact that the ice cream I buy is domestic. ”

Antti Korpiniemi is upset about the downsizing of ice cream production: “This has a big negative effect on employment in the area.”

Also from Porvoo on a passing trip Jarmo Rytinki has not heard the news, but regrets that another company is moving production out of Finland.

“It’s sad. The ice cream hardly gets worse whether it is made in Finland or Sweden, but this is a bad thing for entrepreneurship. It would be important for production to remain in Finland. ”
