The food industry in Denmark is renowned for ambitious sustainable goals. This episode gathers a top panel of Danish experts who describe how the sector is working collaboratively with government, business, academics along with some non-conventional partnerships to continue to raise the bar on sustainability.
Green technologies, resource efficiency, food waste, innovative business models, mainstreaming circular thinking, embedding sustainability across education and supporting consumer behaviour change are just some of the themes they tackle.

Hansen; Rubin Dollerup Nielsen, Business Development Manager at Food at Food & Bio Cluster Denmark and Berit Chavez Azeri, Investment Manager, UK & Ireland at Invest in Denmark to explore the secret ingredients to the country’s sustainability success, the benefits to the local economy and what other countries can learn from the Danish approach.
