CANCELLED! Food Waste Law in Norway

Date/Time: 15 December 2021, 15.00-16.30
Venue: Zoom 

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, about a third of all food produced in the world for human consumption is lost or wasted every year.
A report from 2017 by the Norwegian Government showed that the average Norwegian consumer threw out 42 kg of edible food every year. Furthermore, food waste in the entire food chain represented 68 kg per person every year.
In June 2017, the Norwegian Government established an agreement aimed to reduce food waste by 50% by 2030, and the results so far have not been as good as expected. This led the Parliament (Stortinget) to push the Government to establish a new „Matkastelov”.

Join our panelists to discuss how this law would help Norway reach its goal to reduce food waste and what are the best policy solutions according to NGO’s and food supply chain actors.

Panel: Paula Capodistrias (Project Manager, Matsentralen)
Valérie Lengard Almli (Senior Scientist, Nofima)
Emil Beddari (Framtiden i våre hender)
Moderator: Alice Dellavalle (LawTransform)
