Stockholm Food Movement on Wednesday, October 18th will have a little bit of something for everyone!
Featuring five fantastic speakers covering a spectrum of food issues and innovation concepts, we will reflect on a variety of ways to eat more sustainably for ourselves and the planet. We will explore how and where to most sustainably grow food from farms, to backyard gardens, to indoor hydroponic technology. We will discover a new app that provides dietary guidelines based on your own blood test results and then learn about a digital information platform that will help you reduce food waste!
The evening will begin as usual with doors open at 17.30 and presentations starting promptly at 18. Please feel free to bring yummy sustainable treats to share! Since we have so many great speakers expect the night to run a little longer than usual!
You will hear from:
Gunnar Backman – Co-owner of Nordisk Råvara
At Nordisk Råvara we believe that we should produce more of our own food and that we need to offer more plant-based foods and food ingredients as alternatives to animal foods. Currently much of our food is produced in large monocultures with chemical treatments and little regard to soil type and microclimate. But we can become more self-sustainable, have better control and transparency in the food production chain and do great service to the climate by producing a variety of great foods locally. Nordisk Råvara AB won the first prize in Vinnova’s competition for innovative climate-friendly food in 2016.
