ZERO WASTE - Surprising stories, passionate advocates, innovative waste reduction techniques and new business inspiration - all focusing on using, not wasting, leftover food

Within the Zero Waste Village, in collaboration with chefs, restaurants, producers, food shops, technology consultants, property owners and visitors, come and learn what you need to know and hear stories surrounding the challenges to enable yourself to be part of changing the food waste landscape. Taste Stockholm – one of the world’s largest food festivals – will this year pledge to send zero food waste to landfill and to try and share this energy and passion with all our visitors.



Did you know that if the land that grows food which is not eaten would constitute the second largest country in the world, producing the third largest amount of green house gases?


To highlight this challenge, the issue of reducing food waste will be at the centre of the Foodtech Village Pavilion. Come and meet the fantastic entrepreneurs who can and will grow, create and cook the food of the future.

•  RE:WINERS WINETASTING – 5th -9th of  June at 15:30 -16:00

Wine tasting on discarded exclusive wines

On the Swedish wine market, whole batches of drinkable wine are destroyed meaning a proportion never reach our glasses despite the wine being flawless. This is due to a number of reasons -in part because we are a large wine loving country with a huge range, partly because wine is trend sensitive and that wine over time can change character in the bottle. When maturing, it can both lose and strengthen the tones that make the wine no longer hold what it once promised. Foodloopz, in collaboration with the wine importer Brasri AB and Örebro University, has developed a brand and a process to be able to reintroduce this good wine back out on the market again.

Wasted space : “An introduction to a food culture where challenges and limitations become a possiblity.”

Experiment 2000m2 takes on the difficult but enormously exciting challenge to develop a food culture that respects the boundaries of what the planet, the Baltic Sea and we ourselves tolerate. And at the same time show that it can lead to fantastic, good and healthy food, smarter innovation and better business solutions and models.
