Northeast Iceland Culinary Experience - Local food
For Northeast Iceland, the tourism industry and local food producers have an opportunity to take advantage of the cultural heritage of the region to define a shared vision for product development and marketing linked to local food and food production. After initiative and preparation by Atthing, a group of local companies have formed a cluster around local food, the “Northeast Iceland Culinary Experience (NICE)“.
