For the first time, the most innovative food policy solutions in the Nordic Region have been brought together in a single document. The Solutions Menu includes 24 policies that aim to change food consumption and intends to inspire new and robust policy responses to the societal and environmental challenges caused by our current food systems. The Solutions Menu is produced by the Nordic Food Policy Lab, one of six flagship projects under the Nordic prime ministers’ Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges initiative.

Conclusion: Seeing an opportunity in every challenge

Food waste is high on the political agenda. By addressing food waste, governments can contribute to meeting ambitious greenhouse gas reduction goals at national and regional levels. The socio-economic benefits of reducing food waste are also great: for example, Sweden estimates that annual savings of €1.2 billion are possible though a 20% reduction in food waste. This is based on 2010 data where reductions are spread equally across the food supply chain.
