Evidence-based information and practical solutions

Just food strengthens the inclusion of environmental, economic and nutritional matters in the assessment of the food transition. The project will produce cross-disciplinary, new empirical data on the ecological, economic and nutritional impacts of various paths to emission reduction and the distribution of the impacts between different production sectors, areas and socio-economic groups. This will build a foundation for identifying vulnerable groups and seeking and testing practical solutions in order to reduce vulnerabilities within the transition.

Solutions through cooperation

Just food seeks solutions for carrying out the just food transition in cooperation with its partners – Valio Dairy Cooperative, Helsinki Service Centre, food services of Muurame, Leijona Catering, Juurikas community supported agriculture in Jyväskylä, Oma pelto cooperative, soya producers of Brazil – in different parts of the food system. Together, we will design solutions that recognise and take better into consideration the vulnerable groups in the implementation of the just food transition. This is the project’s unique contribution to the actions and theory of the management of the food transition.
