Innovation for the sustainable food systems of the future

The research is clear, the industry agrees - the food system needs to be transformed to be sustainable for both people and the environment. Sweden has great potential to increase its ability to innovate so that the food system contributes to caring for both the environment and human health, while at the same time 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 help reduce environmental impact and at the same time prevent common diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. Achieving Swedish and international health and sustainability goals requires innovation and cooperation at all levels of society.

In 2022, Vinnova will develop a new and long-term effort to meet the system and policy challenges that hinder innovation and change in the food area. The new initiative will contribute to key players together building capacity and conditions for innovation and sustainability in the Swedish food chain.
