Innovation for sustainable food systems of the future

The research is clear, the industry agrees – the food system needs to be transformed to become sustainable for both people and the environment. Sweden has great potential to increase innovation capacity so that the food system contributes to caring for both the environment and people's health, while providing us with food, jobs and quality of life.

This is how we want to contribute to a sustainable food system

Today, a third of households' climate impact comes from food. The diet is also behind the increase in several common public diseases. A more sustainable and healthy food system can contribute to reducing the environmental impact and at the same time prevent public diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. In order to succeed in reaching the Swedish and international health and sustainability goals, innovation and cooperation are required at all levels in society.

During 2023, Vinnova is developing a new and long-term effort to meet the system and policy challenges that hinder innovation and change in the food area. The new effort A new recipe for the food system will contribute to key actors working together to build capacity and conditions for innovation and sustainability in the Swedish food chain.
