Lessons on food sustainability from Denmark

This report from the Food Ethics Council sets out how UK food businesses and government could learn from the Danish food system. Although Denmark and the UK have similarities, e.g. in climate, Denmark ranked 7th in the 2018 Food Sustainability Index while the UK ranked 24th. 

Contributing factors to the rankings include Denmark’s initiatives to recycle wastewater into irrigation water, reclaim phosphate from sewage sludge, support organic food production through public procurement policies, and promote healthy diets through private-public collaborations.

The report also notes that the UK currently performs better than Denmark regarding food waste.
