Food Nation er et offentligt-privat partnerskab som blev etableret i 2017 af den danske regering og førende private organisationer og virksomheder. Food Nation styrker det internationale kendskab til Danmark som en ledende fødevarenation gennem profilering af fødevareklyngen.
Partnerskabet er gateway for internationale aktører, som søger information om danske fødevareløsninger, produkter eller samarbejde. I Food Nations Visitor Center på Axelborg i København og i Agro Food Park i Aarhus, byder vi delegationer og virksomheder velkommen og giver en samlet introduktion til Danmark som ledende fødevarenation.
