The Swedish food system – how can we become more resilient and sustainable?

This session will be broken into two parts. Firstly, the unexpected crisis in the global food supply chains and the consequences for Sweden. This will take an international outlook on the global food chains that Sweden depends on and explore how the outside world affects Sweden and our food preparedness. The second part will discuss blue food – a key to sustainable food in the future. Seafood can make a substantial contribution to our future food supply. Blue food is a seafood center that brings together research and a diversity of Swedish actors to build the conditions for Swedish production of the seafood of the future.
