2018 - More to do more - Action plan for food loss and food waste reduction by 2030

Food loss and food waste is widespread both in Sweden and around the world, resulting in unnecessary environmental damage, financial loss and eventually poorer ability to provide a growing world population with food.

In February 2017 the government assigned the Swedish National Food Agency together with the Swedish Board of Agriculture and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency to continue work to reduce Sweden's food loss and food waste between 2017 and 2019. The first stage of the assignment is to, in close collaboration with relevant players, develop an action plan for how Sweden can work with long-term measures to reduce food loss and food waste. The measures are to contribute to fulfilment of global sustainability goal 12.3 concerning food loss and food waste in the United Nations' Agenda 2030.
