All the food services are included in your ticket, no need to dig out your wallet to pay. Just grab and eat!
This year in our FoodTech track we’ll be showcasing couple of local startups, like Gold & Green, Epic Foods and Foodiac. So we thought that why not also offer you an opportunity to experience their products first hand, at the Arctic15 Food Street. Oh, and we’ll have a Chicken Wings Bar.. And Finnish Whipped Porridge.
First things first. We know that you are looking for it. Desperate to get some. Quickly. More of it. Coffee. Yes!

So whenever you are in need of some high quality organic coffee, head to Microsoft Flux Cafe. You cannot miss it.
Keeping yourself hydrated is one of the keys to success of managing long conference days. This year we have stepped it up from plain water and partnered with Vitamin Well to bring your stamina and nutritional balance to the next level. Vitamin Well has been bringing smart and delicious beverages to the market since 2006. It started after the founders were missing modern, healthier and tasty alternative to sodas and sugary juices, so they created a drink they wanted to drink themselves. Today, ten years and several international market introductions later, the success of the Swedish vitamin drink is a fact. Since December 2014 world famous footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović has been acting as the ambassador for the brand. Vitamin Well launched Zlatan’s own signature vitamin beverage,Vitamin Well Upgrade, with a fresh taste of lemon and cactus. So when you feel like upgrading yourself, head to Vitamin Well stand to grab a drink! And even better, you can compete there to win a year’s supply* of drinks to your office! (* max 500 bottles).

Another Finnish startup Epic Foods offers us a very unique chance to be one of the first people in the whole world to experience “pulled oats” by Gold & Green, the new sensation in the meat replacement technology world. But as the availability of pulled oats is still very scarce, we will have only limited amount of the portions available and they will be arriving to the venue in small batches straight from Epic Foods kitchen. So be sure to check out the Epic Foods table at Food Street and try to grab yours.
Gold & Green Lemongrass Bowl

And to make sure that there are enough choices for you to choose from, we will also have
Cold-smoked elk soup (<– this is really good, actually the only dish to make a comeback from last year)
Rich tomato-basil soup
Finnish whipped porridge (yes! It is the traditional Vispipuuro!)
Last but definitely not the least, for Chicken Wings lovers – we have something special. A wings bar where you can go and grab chicken wings and dip them to mild or spicy Texas Pete sauce. We’ll get to experience SiipiKings, a brand new concept from Atria, Fort Deli and Valio.
