About EAT Foundation
EAT is a global initiative linking food, health and sustainability; across science, business and policy. Originally launched 3 years ago, EAT is now an independent foundation, with three core partners: The Stordalen Foundation, the Stockholm Resilience Centre, and the Wellcome Trust. The overall objective of EAT is to expand scientific knowledge on the interconnections between food, health and environmental sustainability, spur innovation along the food value chain, and facilitate the development of evidence-based policies and strategies to catalyze a shift to healthier and more sustainable food. Both EAT and its partners share a common understanding that it is essential to catalyse a transformative shift in the global food system to be able to feed more than 9 billion healthy people within the ‘Planetary Boundaries’.

The EAT policy team translates scientific knowledge to action, creates advocacy tools to influence decision makers, informs EAT event composition and strategy and works with governments to develop country-sensitive content and practical policy recommendations.
