Food Systems at SLU

During 2021, the UN made a joint effort to discuss and plan for sustainable food systems around the world, when the UN conference Food Systems Summit was held in New York. Sweden, as well as many other countries, arranged national dialogues on Food Systems preceding the meeting. SLU contributes with research and knowledge about Food Systems. On this theme page, we gather current information from SLU concerning research, knowledge, collaborations and dialogues about how we can achieve a sustainable global food system. 

About Food Systems
