The Danish Embassy explained how sustainability in food production and food consumption is a part of the Danish food culture and thereby a part of the Danish cultural heritage.  As Danish consumers are becoming more and more aware of this issue,  it can also be  considered as a part of the modern Danish  lifestyle.

During the evening, the Danish Embassy handed out information on the Danish way to prevent and/or reduce food waste. Food waste prevention is a national priority in Denmark that engages all actors within the society and therefore it is a win-win situation for all involved parties.

Guests discussed how food waste challenges could be approached by getting important stakeholders involved and committed to making real changes.

Prevention of food waste starts with awareness and Embassies around the world are helping to promote this message.
