Got a sustainable food idea? Enter this competition from Electrolux
Author | Jon Dee
There’s a saying that we are what we eat. If you look at the state of the environment, then you’d have to conclude that we’re not doing as well as we might.
Every day, hundreds of millions of people go to bed hungry, yet the world is growing enough food to feed us all. Looking forward to 2050, it’s estimated that we’ll have another 2 billion people to feed. Food waste and CO2 emissions are growing while obesity and under-nutrition are becoming a bigger problem. These are all big problems, but as with all problems, there are always solutions.
So how do we make our food system more sustainable?
Fortunately, increasing numbers of people are interested in becoming more sustainable with where their food comes from and how they consume it. And healthy, sustainable eating has become part of our daily diet. That’s why Electrolux are looking for innovative ideas to inspire sustainable home cooking in a new global competition. The winner will receive a cash prize of €10,000 and a chance to transform their idea into reality.
You’ll also get a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Stockholm!
