Sinituote is the leading manufacturer and marketer of cleaning equipment, clothing maintenance products, and vehicle care supplies in the Nordic countries. In Kokemäki lies the Sinituote factory that manufactures the majority of the products under the SINI brand.

Hullulenkki (Crazy Sausage in Finnish) is a ready-cooked link sausage, smoked with genuine alder smoke at the Kivikylä Kotipalvaamo curing house. It is also the name for their factory outlet in Huittinen - possibly the biggest link in the world. This owes to the fact that the Hullulenkki store is - true to its name - shaped like a gigantic link sausage, which alone is a good reason to visit this hilarious site.

Eccentric architecture aside, there’s a delectable selection available at the store: fresh, local meat and delicious processed meats daily.

Another speciality at the Kivikylä stores are the completely new products and experimental lots that are not yet available anywhere else.

When you can smell the smoky aroma coming from the small sauna where meats are cured, you will know that the Kivikylä factory outlet in Lappi is near. This is where the Kivikylä story begins.

During your visit, you can have lunch and buy some freshly cut meat - or some of the delicious Kivikylä frankfurters, sausages, and other processed goods - to take home with you.

At the meat counter you’ll also find the smoke-cured meats that come straight from the curing hut trailing gentle alder smoke.

At the outlet you can make amazing finds not available in any retail stores. Some affordable second-rate items and lots of discontinued stock are also quite popular.
