Denmark’s five branding consortiums, Creative Denmark, Digital Hub Denmark, Food Nation, Healthcare Denmark and State of Green participate together with The Confederation of Danish Industries with a business tent in the goal cities Nyborg and Sønderborg. The focus is on positioning Denmark’s strongholds and ambitions in the areas of sustainability, innovation, digitalisation and partnerships.
The tent is strategically located close to the target area in both Nyborg and Sønderborg, where we invite you to join the conversation and get involved in the exciting activities. Food Nation organises two events in the tent, focusing on respectively health via the Climate Dietary Guidelines in Nyborg and food loss and waste in Sønderborg.
2nd of July, Nyborg from 1.00-1.45 pm.
The health of the global population has evolved into one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century with an increasing number of people affected by lifestyle diseases and over 2 billion people not having regular access to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food. For the first time ever, the Danish official dietary guidelines has good advices on how to also eat more climate-friendly. Most people might know that eating less sugar, fat and salt and more greens is good for health and vitality. But how do you put together a diet that is better for the climate?

3rd of July, Sønderborg from 3.00-3.45 pm.
With one-third of all food lost or wasted, representing 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, food loss and waste is one of the biggest global challenges and calls for immediate action. The total amount of food lost or wasted globally, corresponding to 1.6 billion tons of food, is altogether worth approximately $1.2 trillion USD. Reducing food loss and waste is therefore not only a necessary step to sustainable development, but also good business. Join us for a debate on how we all can contribute to a green future.

Have you ever been served gourmet food from a bike?
In Denmark, food experiences are much more than ingredients and what is on the plate. Therefore, you can also meet the “bike chef” (Cykelkokken), Morten Kryger Wulff at the business tent in Nyborg and Sønderborg.
The bike chef will serve tastings based on regional dishes from the start and finish cities based on local ingredients along the route. In addition, there will be local participants and exhibitors from resp. Nyborg, Sønderborg and surroundings.
