"the New the Swedish countryside minister Jennie Nilsson (S) believe in organic food, despite the fact that it has been questioned from a climate point of view. She does not rule out some form of economic incentive for more people to choose organic."
"It is important that you are politically dare to work for the increased demand," she says in a TT interview."
"Organic food is no soul issue. On the plus side, can be counted a production free from pesticides and artificial fertilizers, but in the debate there has been that organic farming is worse for the climate. It shows, for example, a forskarstudie where, among other things, Chalmers participated. It is explained by the fact that organic crops require more land, at the expense of koldioxidslukande forests."
"Jennie Nilsson would still not put a question mark for organically farmed food."
"– But not an exclamation mark either, for it is not so simple. I think that it is important not to be too lättstressad or nervous in these matters. We shall continue to work with organic products, but we also need to ensure that it really is climate-smart. Research and product development is as important here as in other industries, " she says."
"Organic products cost considerably more. There will be an impact on individual households, but also for schools and homes for the elderly to pursue the national goal of a higher percentage of organic on the plates. Jennie Nilsson see that it can be the need of economic instruments, therefore, subsidies in any form, in order to increase demand."
"– It is possible that you need to look at the question of who pays for political ambition, she says, and compare it with the electricity market, where electricity is spreading the cost of investment in renewable electricity."
"she describes herself as quite normal in their eating habits, but with economic ability to choose freely."
" I am a nursing assistant at the bottom and have full respect for all can not afford to do organic, or other choices. It I carry with me politically, the cost should not be a starting point for what you eat. Therefore, it is important to bring up the volume and bring down costs. And it may be that subsidies are justified in order to jointly pay for a political objective."
"When the TT hits Jennie Nilsson, it is two weeks since she moved from the reichstag to the landsbygdsministerns chair at the ministry of industry. She took a ministerportfölj which can accommodate everything from sub-alpine forest and rovdjursjakt to the EU's agricultural policy. It has been intense reading and many draws."
"– It is like to be thrown into a clothes dryer and try to come out with your feet down, " she sums up."
"She acknowledges in no uncertain terms that she is a hillbilly, but a few cows outside the window, she didn't while growing up in hawaii. She is fabriksarbetardotter in a family with trade union and political commitment. She started a local SSU-club as a 13-year-old. The political career took off when she was 29 years old became mayor of Hylte, a task that required political broad collaboration."
"the Experience can come in handy now when she has to run a rural policy which allowed The centre party and the Liberal stamp of approval."
"– But the interpersonal skills are one of my greatest strengths. I am also extremely results-oriented, " she says."
"High on the agenda"
"– They have certainly tapped into the wording, I would probably not put it so. But in the package there are certainly many elements that are purely business and very sossiga. Agriculture and forest is the key for jobs and growth, " says Jennie Nilsson."
"It will also be the task she is going to give priority to the first in the line of their liability issues – to strengthen the competitiveness of the green industry. Sweden is to become more self-sufficient in foodstuffs, and to reach there is a need for more export."
" We are going to export what we are good at, as high value-added products, and to interesting markets, such as China. We will always be a small country, and need to export to the right markets, " said Jennie Nilsson."
