All though Denmark is a small country, we have proven that we provide intelligent and efficient solutions to the world’s global challenges. We are leading within circular economy, but now, my ambition is, that we must also take the lead when it comes to food waste and food loss. Researchers have concluded, that as an individual, the greatest contribution one can make is to reduce ones food waste, and the UN has identified it as one of the 17 sustainable development goals, so the potential is enormous. We must embrace this challenge and utilize our ability to work across sectors and think innovatively in order to contribute with solutions, which can prevent food waste and food loss and make progress that will benefit the entire world.
