The Nordic Chambers and Embassies in the Netherlands are very pleased to invite you to the  #NordicTalks 2022 – Food for Good Summit and EXPO. 

The food system is incredibly complex as it spans through different resources and across the globe. We need a complete overhaul of the system to be able to feed 10 billion people with nutritious food by 2050. In #NordicTalks on September 22, 2022, we will meet up live at The Amsterdamse Proeflokaal to follow up on the insights and takeaways from #NordicTalks digital Food for Good event in February 2022.

At #NordicTalk Food for Good on September 22, 2022, we bring together business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians, and academics from the Nordic countries and from the Netherlands to address how we can contribute to the sustainable and healthy transformation of our global food systems. This will include insights on changes in nutrition sources, urban ecosystems, and local farming to shorten the supply chains and technology – all to ensure food security and resilience in times of climate change, economic decline, and war conflict in Europe.

We are happy to announce that we are offering you the opportunity to join us, learn, taste, and network free of charge. For more information, visit the #NordicTalks website.

Golden tips for consumers from #NordicTalk Food for Good February 2022:

  • Be your own gardener – see what you can grow on your own to realize what is the effort behind the whole process and also the value of the food once you put your energy into it 
  • Sniff, Look and Taste before you throw away food just because based on the label it is expired 
  • Support your local producers
  • Educate yourself of what are you eating, read what are the ingredients and nutritions of your choices. Choose smart! And explore new foods from time to time, keeping your mind open 
  • ENJOY – on your own, with family and friends – because food is such a big part of a culture and a way to express emotions
