"A third of all produced food ends up in the trash."
"But Sweden's action plan to reduce losses is for the toothless, according to researchers at the Swedish university of agricultural sciences (SLU)."
"IN the UN:s 17:e global goals called the earth's food waste must be halved by the year 2030. How Sweden can achieve the goal specified in a plan of action to reduce food wastage, such as the Nfa, the environmental protection agency and the Swedish board of Agriculture gave out in the last year."
"But Sweden needs to go further, consider Ingrid Contrary, researches about the food at SLU."
"– It is a goal that has become very run in Sweden now. But I do not know from where it comes, if someone has set up the finger in the air only. In fact, there is a scientific basis for this wastage must be reduced by 75 percent, " says Ingrid Battle."
"In a new report reflects the researchers at SLU over which new tools can be used to the food that is produced is not to be disposed of."
"One such idea is to give priority to measures that reduce wastage of animal products, which have larger environmental impacts than plant foods. Another is to require all actors who handle food will have a ready plan for what they'll make of the food."
"today it is a little,"
"Researchers at SLU also question how knowledgeable consumers are about food. Instead of taste, smell and look will adhere to many consumers after the 'best before' labelling, which is wrongly perceived as a hälsorekommendation, consider Ingrid a fight."
"– Need we even have the best föremärkningar, or is it enough to specify the produktionsdatumet? It can also be increased public education about food sustainability, for example through more food science in the school."
"– to Formulate national objectives for Sweden: a 50 percent reduction in food waste by 2030, 75 percent less food waste by 2050."
"– to give Priority to wastage of animal products to quickly bring down the environmental impact."
"– Before a national svinndatacenter where operators report the data, which can highlight ”hot spots” in order to stimulate research and innovation."
"– Investigate producer responsibility for the food."
"– Require that all operators who handle the food have a ”plan B” prepared in advance, for how överskottsmat to be managed to get benefit of that food when, not if, losses occur."
"– Instruct the Swedish national agency for Education to introduce matbedömning in the curriculum and to expand the subject home - and consumer."
"– Folkbilda if the best-before-its meaning, matbedömningar and matsvinnets consequences."
"– Continue the work on the optimal (reduced) temperature in the cold chain."
"– Challenge färskvarunormen. What foods can with advantage be handled in a frozen or dried condition?"
"– Examine the shrinkage in all parts of the food system, and also the animals that are not currently used for meat production, such as horses, laying hens and goats."
