The 2018 EAT Stockholm Food Forum explored a range of solutions available for achieving healthy and sustainable diets for a growing global population. It confronted some of the hard questions head on, such as how to feed the world with zero land expansion and ocean depletion, or the benefits of processed foods and clean meat.

Which solutions are needed for large scale reduction of food waste?
This panel addressed the solutions needed to win the war on food waste. Thinking big but actionable, is it possible to implement a treaty of sensible rules and guidelines that countries can adopt? For example, on waste quotas along value chain, promoting “ugly” vegetables, re-use of food waste in livestock feed, finding a way to tax food waste. Do we know enough to have clear and actionable recommendations for food system actors? Are there any ethical dilemmas involved? And, what role does industry see for itself in the war on food waste?
The panel consisted of:
- Bernice Lee, Hoffmann Centre for Sustainable Resource Economy, Chatham House
- Annica Bresky, Executive Vice President of Consumer Board Division, Stora Enso
- Bjørn Arild Wisth, Deputy CEO, Nordic Choice Hotels

The Great Food Transformation: Onward and upward!
During EATForum18, we have showcased innovative solutions, uncommon collaborations, and fruitful ideas that will help us onwards towards a healthier and more sustainable food system. Cutting through the complexity of the food system, this panel will highlight opportunities for immediate action. What are the next steps to keep the momentum going: individually, locally, regionally and globally? See video second day
Business Models from the Edge: Wealth from Wastewater, Salary from Sunbeams, Profits From PoopCGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE)
It’s time to shake up the food production business and ensure wise use and reuse of natural resources. Turn toilet waste into fuel or fertilizer. Irrigate using solar technology. Global researchers will pitch financially, environmentally and socially viable business models. Join us to get business ideas, offer advice, and learn.
Antiglobalism was on the rise in 2017. What will that mean for food security and nutrition? The Sweden launch of IFPRI’s 2018 Global Food Policy Report will examine the impacts of global integration—including the movement of goods, investment, people, and knowledge—and the threat of current antiglobalization pressures.
Chatham House and the International Livestock Research Institute
A new evidence review shows that livestock-derived foods – meat, milk and eggs – are essential elements in the diets of women and children in developing countries. Nutrient-rich diets will improve their futures. This session presented this evidence and asks how we can meet the needs of poor people at a key moment in their lives – during the first 1000 days of a child’s life – without compromising our planet’s health.
The True Cost of Food
World Business Council for Sustainable Development
FReSH has developed a discussion paper on the True Cost of Food. The event will discuss technical, organizational, and policy barriers that prevent true cost approaches to be widely used today. By reaching out to partners active in this area, we aim at overcoming those are barriers and transform food systems for sustainability and health.
- The Initial Outcome Paper for Discussion from the first Dialogue Putting Food in Food held in London on 13-15 March 2018 explores the solution spaces for processed and packaged food, and calls for creating and amplifying a new narrative that insists that all food produced and consumed should be good for people and the planet.
- The Summary Outcome Paper for Discussion from the second Dialogue People, Planet, Protein: What’s the Plan held in Washington, D.C. on 24-26 April 2018 explores the solutions spaces for shifting towards more sustainable and healthy protein sources and more sustainable livestock production.
