World Food Summit 2017

Copenhagen, August 23-25 

The Danish Minister of Environment and Food, Esben Lunde Larsen will in August 2017 invite leading, international experts, gastronomy frontrunners, influencers, and decisions makers for the World Food Summit, marking its second year running. The two-day summit will discuss challenges, share best practices and finally to set targets and take action through global and local partnerships.

In order to underscore and anchor the relevance of providing better food for more people the World Food Summit 2017 include a series of side activities such as a Social Mega Dinner for citizens, The Food Exhibition “Bite Copenhagen”, Case Competition among students, Food Trips to farming and businesses, EMBLA - a prize for innovators and a Official Dinner for the participants.

Global food challenges are only solvable if we address and try to deal with them on an international scale. World Food Summit – Better Food for More People will for the 2nd year in a row bring leading food producers, chefs, and government institutions together in order to create an international forum and to come up with qualified solutions.


In the light of The Big Kitchen food information, food safety, food diversity and food waste become important issues and crucial themes to bring answers to the solutions needed. The four themes are all addressed at the World Food Summit 2017. They will follow the same program structure, ensuring both evaluation of achievement from Food Summit 2016 and how the current challenges can be translated into joint goals and future actions.
