FOR LOVE OF FOOD AND

PROUDNESS OF OUR ORIGIN

It is we, Jarmo and Sari who have founded Nordic Temptations. Already for over 25 years we have lived away from our motherland Finland, the majority of these years in Sweden making it feel like the second homeland for us. In fact, it is the homeland of the third member of our family, Bullterrier Åke. We want to honour our heritage by introducing the true taste and sensations of the North not only for the French people but through the webshop for the whole world.

Our mission is to provide customer satisfaction with attention to detail. Our main focuses are personal, prompt and friendly service as well as to provide help and advise whenever it is needed.
