Smaka Sverige

Jordbruksverket was asked by the Swedish Government to create a knowledge bank; a place for research and facts about Swedish food culture. We helped them! Read more about how it went below. 


The task involved creating a knowledge bank about Swedish food culture. The biggest challenge within the project was the fact that the content they wanted on the website was not available when the project started. Another challenge was the tight time schedule with only three months from project start to launch.

We were asked to build and develop the entire solution and the launch would take place at the end of 2014. We used SiteVision as the CMS for the website since it was used in all of Jordbruksverkets’ websites and intranets. Publik Kommunikation made the concept and the agency inUse Experience made the design.


This project was extremely slim – from the first sketches to the launched website. The goal was achieved through a very close collaboration with inUse Experience. We were also able to use SiteVision’s standard functionality and modules as far as it could go without compromising on design or functionality.


The result is a future-proof SiteVision website under the name Smaka Sverige, basically only built with SiteVision’s standard functions and modules.

The website has around 1,000 articles on Swedish food, drinks and raw materials. In order to find among all these articles, large parts of the website are based on SiteVision’s very powerful Solr search engine.

– SiteVision has features and modules that provide a good foundation for building a functional, future-proof and accessible website, Alexander Gustafsson, Strategist and Solutions Architect at Consid, says.

Smaka Sverige was nominated in the SiteVision Prize – Guldhanden, for Best Public Website 2015 and we also had a lecture with Jordbruksverket during The SiteVision Days 2015.

– Thanks to Consid’s creative and flexible working methods, we were able to develop the website even though most of the content was not in place when the project started, Karin Sannerud, Project Manager at Smaka Sweden, says.
