Abstract [en]

International studies are dealing with the promotion of sustainable food systems more frequently. Additionally, places of purchase and sharing in the choice of food to be consumed have become a network system for families. The aim of this work is to analyse the preferences of Swedish consumers for local/artisanal cheeses and the purchase motivations that guide their choices. We also studied the role played by consumers’ favourite shopping locations (retail store, hypermarket, city market, supply chain). On the one hand, we examined the attractiveness and the power exercised by the various stores and on the other hand, we viewed the consumer in relation to the frequency of purchase, and the confidence with the sales points. We interviewed 200 people in the city of Östersund, highlighting habits, consumption preferences and reasons for purchasing. A multiple correspondence analysis explores the reasons behind the purchase preferences of the local ‘Källarlagrad getost’ artisan cheese from the Slow Food brand. The representations of social network analysis are used to show the complex articulations that influence the choices of consumers in terms of type of cheese purchased/consumed and places of purchase/consumption. The results showed that Swedish consumers, in the purchase of cheeses, have a loyalty point at the point of sale, follow the advice of the seller and are attentive to the reputation of the product. Those who buy Källarlagrad getost are sensitive to safety, appreciate artisan cheeses and choose them for their versatility, have a strong connection with the territory and wish to contribute to supporting the local economy. Knowing these characteristics and preferences of Swedish consumers living in a city in the north of the country is important for marketing activities and for promoting tourism and sustainable gastronomy

Abstract [en]

Purpose – This paper aims to propose the concept of social terroir to help navigate phenomenological and epistemological conditions of small-scale food entrepreneurship.

Design/methodology/approach – This study used a qualitative research approach and was implemented in the peripheral region of Jämtland in northern Sweden. The study interrogated the ambitions of craft brewers when starting up, their long-term goals and visions, including questions about the reason for starting up a brewery, how the different brewers cooperate and how and why the products are designed and labelled the way they are.

Findings – This study shows that the production of craft beer is an inherently social practice that is part of a particular sociocultural milieu. This milieu informs production in distinct and interrelated ways: through connecting to place and locality in the different aspects of production and marketing, through cooperation to develop production and overcome barriers, and through embedding their work in sustainability discourses.

Originality/value – The study addresses how, in the context of craft beer, terroir or taste of place, is a matter of social ties to place and community–social terroir. What is novel is the way in which social terroir becomes a critical ingredient in the production of craft beer. This illustrates how small-scale food production and gastronomic efforts can link people, places and businesses.

Abstract [en]

This paper explores the growth of the craft beer sector in a northern Swedish rural setting, with a particular focus on how small-scale brewers manage to fund their activities and ventures. It connects craft brewing with the concept of bootstrapping, a theoretical foundation into understanding alternative paths of funding business operations. This study has used qualitative measures in order to reach a deeper understanding of the research field. More specifically, a case study has been performed in the peripheral, northern Swedish region of Jämtland. It is a comprehensive case study, including interviews with all of the 14 craft brewers in the region, as well as observations of brewing sites. The study established that most of the brewers have funded their business activities with alternative funding and bootstrapping methods. Also, the brewers try to keep external financing to a minimum, but it is an inevitable necessity for most of them to use some type of external funding in the start-up process. Contributing to the findings is also the frequency whereby the brewers use the regions other brewers as a resource network, thus elevating the social bootstrapping dimension to a highly important survival technique.

Abstract [en]

The significance of gastronomy for the tourism industry is nowadays a well-studied field. Previous research has shown that there are many destinations that have used gastronomy to strengthen regional or national tourism experiences. For instance, Wales in the United Kingdom (Jones and Jenkins, 2002), Australia (Cambourne and Macionis, 2003), the Niagara Region in Canada (Telfer and Hashimoto, 2003) and Singapore (Henderson, 2004) to mention a few examples. These examples show that gastronomy is directly or indirectly connected to the destinations since it inspires tourists to experience the local food of a region. Researchers have shown that gastronomy can also be used in marketing and in branding a region or a nation (Frochot, 2003; Boyne and Hall, 2004; du Rand and Heath, 2006; Hashimoto and Telfer, 2006; Fox, 2007; Lin, Pearson and Cai, 2011). Some studies have shown that tourists seek regional and ethnic gastronomy because of their desire to have unique experiences (Reynolds, 1993; Hall et al, 2003; Cohen and Avieli, 2004; Lin, Pearson and Cai, 2011). Even more important is that tourists’ gastronomy experiences can contribute to their satisfaction with the destination (Nield et al, 2000; Yuksel and Yuksel, 2002) and can also influence their desire to return to the destination (Sparks et al, 2003; Lin, Pearson and Cai, 2011). The Swedish government launched in 2010 “Sweden – the new gastronomy country” with the long term vision is also to gain better profitability for Swedish farmers, growers and producers, rural development, doubling gastronomy exports, more tourists visiting Sweden for the good sake of gastronomy, better public meals and more quality restaurants. But above all, the aim is to focus on the unique tastes, experiences, products and people (http://matlandet.se/about/). 80 % of tourists think that gastronomy and experiences is a main purpose for a trip and within the tourism sector and more and more people travel to rural areas to experience new and local gastronomy. However, there are some regions that are more successful in their use of gastronomy for tourism development. The aim with this paper is to discuss how tourism with the help of gastronomy can develop an underdeveloped tourism region. The study was designed as a qualitative case study where two neighboring regions in the middle of Sweden were chosen. The regions are both peripheral and are consider semi to highly rural by character. Interviews were conducted with gastronomy companies, public actors such as representatives from the region as well as the municipality and gastronomy actors. The result shows that it is important with education in gastronomy in the region. It is also of great importance with networks and key actors that works as an engine for the industry. The results point towards industrial and business heritage as an important component in adapting to new demands in tourism development based on gastronomy. It is not just important with large companies that grow, but also many small scale companies can contribute to gastronomy offers for the tourists.

Culture, Creativity, and the Sustainability Agenda: the Experience of Östersund in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network

During the last decade, cities around the world have promoted creativity as a resource for regeneration and new development. As a result, a number of efforts have emerged around this theme and many cities today seek to identify themselves as “creative hubs”. The UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) is one example of a network of cities that attempts to use creativity as a mechanism to achieve sustainable growth and development as envisioned by Agenda 2030. The network has grown rapidly since its inception in 2004 and now has 180 members worldwide that have all adopted the UCCN guidelines and directives. In this paper, the authors explore the connections between membership in the network and implementation of sustainable development goals. The paper uses the northern Swedish city of Östersund as a case study, which has been an active member of the UCCN since 2010. Study findings indicate that membership in the UCCN has enabled Östersund to advance sustainability discourse at a regional level, as well as improved practice in a limited sense. At the same time, findings also identify a number of challenges for integrating sustainability objectives at the regional level as well as directly into the UCCN.

Abstract [en]

Residing with the exponential growth of gastronomy tourism research, a number of review articles have examined the relationship of gastronomy and tourism from distinct thematic and disciplinary perspectives. What remains absent is a comprehensive overview that encapsulates the interdisciplinary dimensions of this area of research. In response, this study comprehensively investigates gastronomy tourism literature utilizing a network and content analysis, with an aim to map the main subject areas concerned with gastronomy tourism and relations between varying subject areas. In doing so, themes determining gastronomy tourism and focus for future exploration are identified. The review findings suggest that the trajectory of gastronomy tourism research is characterized by the dominance of "tourism, leisure, and hospitality management" and "geography, planning, and development." Three recommendations are proposed to assist development of gastronomy tourism research: increased dialogue across subject areas, development of critical and theoretical approaches, and greater engagement with sustainability debates.

Within the last few years, cities around the world have promoted creativity as a new resource for driving future development. As a result, a number of networks have emerged around this theme. The UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) is one such network that attempts to use creativity as a mechanism to achieve sustainable growth and development. The network has grown rapidly since its inception in 2004 and now has 180 members worldwide, all of which have adopted the UCCN guidelines and directives. In this paper, the authors explore if and how cities use their membership to implement sustainable development goals. The paper uses the northern Swedish city of Östersund as a case study, which has been an active member of the UCCN since 2010. Study findings indicate that membership in the UCCN has enabled Östersund to advance sustainability discourse at a regional level, as well as improve practice in a limited sense. At the same time, findings also identify a number of challenges for integrating sustainability objectives into the UCCN.
