Kuusijärvi is a popular all-season outdoor recreational center. It is known as a gateway to the Sipoonkorpi National Park. By summertime the green nature and a sandy beach, by wintertime the beautiful cross-country skiing landscape with the invigorating ice swimming possibilities, are the foundations for Kuusijärvi’s popularity.

FAZER – We welcome you to experience Fazer with all five senses

The Fazer experience gained a new dimension when Fazer Experience Visitor Centre opened
on September 17 2016 – exactly 125 years after Karl Fazer opened his café in Kluuvikatu, Helsinki.

Today Fazer is an international family-owned company offering bakery, confectionery, biscuit and grain products, as well as food and café services. Our mission is to create taste sensations that we hope to inspire you to enjoy. We are continuing in the spirit of Karl Fazer, wanting to exceed your expectations every single day.

Experience the exhibition on one-hour tours led by our own guides. The exhibition gives an insight into Fazer’s activities and extensive product selection, as well as its long history and heritage,
corporate responsibility and innovations.

In the exhibition you can spot for example the giant bunny made out of 9 330 Mignon eggs.  In fact, the visiting experience begins already outside. You approach the Fazer Experience Visitor Centre by a winding path through a garden of raw materials where you can experience, see, smell and even taste the grains and some of the fruit trees. The plants have been mainly chosen from the useful plants and crops that Fazer uses as raw materials in its production and food preparing in restaurants. Inside the Visitor Centre the theme continues. You are met by a tropical garden with its cocoa trees, vanilla and sugar cane.

The guided tour is in English. Each visitor will be given a product sample bag at the end of the tour. It is also possible to do shopping in the store or enjoy the sweet and savoury treats that our bakers and pastry chefs conjure up along with high-quality handmade bread, chocolate and pastries in our Fazer Café.
