Sustainable food from Sweden is the future
The need to eat more sustainably is a hot topic around the globe but, in Sweden, consumers are ready to put their money where their mouth is. Green-minded Swedish food producers are among the world’s leading innovators in the fields of sustainable farming and organic food production.
Sweden is one of the countries at the forefront of this movement. The famously planet-conscious country is home to a well-developed sustainable food industry and a deep-rooted awareness among consumers that the way they eat affects their own health as well as that of the planet.
Sara Sundquist is a policy expert with the Swedish Food Federation, a trade body with 800 member companies representing all aspects of the Swedish food industry. “When you buy Swedish, you can rest assured it represents the highest standard of sustainable food production,” she says. “This goes for everything from use of chemicals, pesticides and antibiotics, to the way the animals are treated.”
The Swedish Food Federation has set out its intentions for sustainable Swedish food production in a manifesto, where it states its goals across key areas such as energy use, food waste, animal protection and ethical business practices. The manifesto is currently being revised to reflect new objectives. “We wrote the first manifesto in 2013 but here has been so much progress in the last five years that we’re ready to be even more ambitious,” says Sundquist, adding that the new manifesto will include aggressive targets for efficient energy use, minimised use of pesticides and antibiotics and, equality and diversity in the workplace.
