EAT is partnering with a range of foundations, organisations and companies from the academic, public, business and civil society sectors, who serve to provide strategic advice and financial support to EAT. Corporate partners are carefully selected companies that have a clear sustainability profile and a strong focus on healthy and sustainable food products or production practices. EAT delivers unique value to its partners through its collaborative network, annual and regional meetings and other activities.
The EAT Foundation was co-founded by the Stordalen Foundation, the Wellcome Trust, and the Stockholm Resilience Centre. The three organizations use their unique experience in health, science, policy and sustainability to convene experts and decision makers who can transform the way we eat. The Founding Partners provide guidance for all EAT policies and activities, including overseeing the content of the Forum programs. The Founding Partners each contribute with financial or human resources, and are represented in the Board of Directors.
A major barrier to accelerating food systems transformation is a lack of scientific consensus on what constitutes a healthy and sustainable diet. The Academic Partners stimulate and disseminate research that advances EAT’s vision, and contribute with scientific expertise and networks to EAT’s strategy and programs. Partnering institutions have a representative in the Advisory Board.
Main Business partners
The Strategic Partners comprise a carefully selected group of relevant and highly recognized intergovernmental organizations, professional associations, trade unions and NGOs contributing with their competence and expertise, ideas and engagement, relevant network and distribution channels. The Strategic Partners benefit from and contribute to the global knowledge base to inspire the intellectual agenda of the Forum meetings; sharing best practices through participation in or facilitation of EAT talks and plenary discussions.
