I will focus on how new technology and data is being used to improve food retailers way of working, especially with regards to solving the problem of food waste.
Since we today are working with retailers from 20 countries from across the world, we have been able to obtain a lot of knowledge and seen different examples on technology related initiatives.
Furthermore, I will touch upon the fact that collaboration across the supply chain, both with regards to technical compatibility as well as data sharing and how it will be a necessity to solve both the food waste problem, but also to gain the biggest advantages related to new technology.

Nordic Sustainability Manager at Linas Matkasse Group AB with a history from Coop and many years in the Swedish food industry. Now working with focus on lowering food waste and increase efficiency in the food online business.

People need to eat a certain number of calories every day, all year round, every human being. The meals we want to serve our families should be healthy, tasty, varied and inspiring.

I will talk about the sustainability challenges this brings, and how we have built food supply chains based on old behaviors and habits. We can reduce the sustainability impact from the food chain by streamlining the way we buy and prepare food, and lower the food waste and the climate impact from food production.
