New things emerge when creativity and problem-solving converge: Sini Elonen is developing tomorrow’s products from powders

A small milk truck climbs the winding roads of an Alpine village as the locally befitting sound of yodelling echoes from the radio. The music choice of the host of local cheesery, apparently. The internship in Switzerland with its unique little quirks sparks joyful memories for Sini Elonen, who, even as a student, knew she wanted to work at Valio. The Alpine scenery has since been replaced with the hybrid reality in which she keeps busy in Valio’s research and product development work in Helsinki and at the Valio Lapinlahti plant, and engaging in collaboration with international partners and customers, among other things.
