Hurtigruten in farm-to-table deal

By Tom Stieghorst
Hurtigruten, the Norwegian coastal cruise line, said it will partner with small Norwegian businesses to provide a year-round supply of local ingredients for its culinary offerings.

The line said more than 200 suppliers have registered an interest and it expects to announce the first partners in early 2014.

After the suppliers are picked, Hurtigruten will develop menus tailored to the seasonal delicacies of the regions where the ships are visiting. The more authentic dining experiences that result will be attractive to its guests seeking to experience Norway in a "unique and meaningful way," it added.
