EUREST Services, Sweden (Pre-waste Factsheet 106)

In Sweden, it is estimated that about a quarter of all food purchased never gets eaten, but is thrown away. This means unnecessary production and often long transportation, leading to a waste of raw material and energy.

A fifth of all food consumed in Sweden, e.g. 1.4 bn. portions, is consumed within the so called hospitality sector (hotels, restaurants/canteens and catering). One of the actors - Eurest Services - runs restaurants at private companies, universities and schools all over Sweden. They have 120 restaurants with approximately 60.000 meals served every day.
