Fia is a serial entrepreneur and a self-trained chef focused on creative gastronomy. Charged with the spirit of Pippi Longstocking and the vigour of IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad she was appointed as Honorary Doctor PhD by the Mid Sweden University 2017.


Fia uses food and culture as the tools for sustainable profits. She’s CEO of Food In Action Company Group founded by her in 2000. The company has launched a number of successful initiatives and sustainable brands like The Great Nordic Feast, Eat Up Food Walks, Flowfood and prizewinning Jazzkoket.
