RISE offers broad expertise and customised solutions to increase resource efficiency and reduce food waste.
One third of all food produced in the world is lost or wasted during the journey from primary producer to the plate. At RISE, we work to reduce the impact of food waste on the environment, climate and ecosystems. We work to accelerate the transition to sustainable foodsystems through the development of research and innovative business models. We strive to contribute to increased resource-efficient food productions and to promote sustainable consumption behaviors in society. Our vision is a food chain without unnecessary food losses.
We believe that innovative and cross-sectoral collaborations between the research field, businesses, public sector and civil society, paves way for a stable and resource-efficient food system. RISE gathers experienced researchers, project managers and business developers that can deliver research, education and calculations that identify the environmental impact and economic costs of food waste. Based on this, we can propose improvement opportunities that can maximize resource utilization within your organisations value chain.
For over 20 years, we have researched and mapped food waste on behalf of Swedish food companies, national authorities and international organisations. Our experts helped the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), with mapping the first global figures on food losses and food waste.
We were paer of the European Commission's task force in the development of guidelines for the measurement of food waste within the framework of the EU Waste Directive, and were part of the consortium that developed the first global standard for quantifying food waste. We have a broad network and expert roles within the EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste, in SAMS – the cross-sectorial, national initiative for reducing food waste and Klimat 2030 – Västra Götaland ställer om.
RISE gathers experts with research and business-based experience in food processes, sustainable food production and consumption, which form the backbone of our expertise.
