About Swedish Food and Environment Information

På svenska

Svensk mat- och miljöinformation, Swedish Food and Environment Information, is a non-profit member organisation providing information about the environmental impact of the food sector and working for a sustainable food system. The organisation works from a holistic perspective and on a scientific basis.

We want to see a world where all people have access to enough and nutritious food, produced within the planetary boundaries and where human rights and animal welfare are respected. We want a sustainable global food system, where farmers are paid fairly for their products.

Since animal agriculture is the major cause of negative environmental impact in the food sector, and one of the most impactful causes of environmental degradation overall, a main focus is to promote a radical reduction in the production and consumption of animal foods in Sweden and globally.
