Semma’s history spans over two decades. The company's foundation stones were laid by Sonaatti Ltd in 1997. This solid foundation makes it is easy to build a future for the newest ‘apple of our eye’, Semma.

We are a joint venture of the University of Jyväskylä, the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä and Fazer Food Services Ltd.


 Our values comprise actions, knowledge, skills and courage, spiced with a pinch of fresh winds from the future. We are attuned to the present and feel the pulse of the time. We follow trends and are ready for continuous change in tastes as well as ideas.

And if the winds of the future fail to blow hard enough, we create new ones. This is the promise we intend to keep.


A diverse selection of cafes and lunch restaurants, part of student life, an inviting and attractive meeting place at the university –we are close to your every day. We want to discuss, listen to and see your needs. Let’s create the best memories for the future together.

You will find us in Ruusupuisto, Mattilanniemi, Seminaarinmäki, Ylistönrinne, Kortepohja student village and uptown Jyväskylä.
We welcome all friends of good food – for breakfast, lunch, a snack or a relaxing coffee break in good company.

Semma Campus Bakery is our own bakery that bakes up mouth-watering bread, buns and seasonal goodies for all our restaurants. You can also buy Semma’s bakery products to take away or for meetings.


It is our privilege to provide the best possible resources for your success in studies and work. We want to offer you only the best everyday culinary experiences. Our professional pride is based on an uncompromising desire to offer perfect taste and service experiences. A satisfied customer is the start and end of all our activities.
We trust in the power of open dialogue and collaboration.

Healthy nutrition is a cornerstone of mental and physical wellbeing – now and tomorrow.
Our values include the promotion of domestic produce and a focus on responsibly produced ingredients. That is why we primarily use organic ingredients in food preparation. This puts us on step three in the portaat luomuun (‘steps to organic production’) programme. We take into account seasonal variety and the provision of local food as much as possible.
