Better Food for More People

24-25 August 2017 in Christiansborg (The Danish Parliament)

The purpose of the global movement “Better Food for More People” and the annual World Food Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark is to unleash the full potential of gastronomy in order to create worldwide solid solutions that ensure better food for more people.

The urban population of the world has grown rapidly from 746 million in 1950 to 3.9 billion in 2014 and is expected to surpass 6 billion by 2045. The amount of information about food is huge and difficult to get right, 1 in 10 people in the world fall ill after eating contaminated food, more than 244 million people lived outside their country of origin and more than 40 % of food waste in industrialized countries occurs at retail and consumer levels. The need for strong solutions across the world is calling for action among the worlds politicians, decision makers, experts, professionals, chefs, scientist and CEOs.

Better Food for More People and the annual World Food Summit in Copenhagen is framing that action to evolve and take place. Together with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals which involves all nations, the aim is to push forward the agenda on sustainable development within production and consumption of food and essentially healthy lives in the global society.

Butcher's Manifesto Summit 2017

18-21 August 2017 in Folkets Madhus

Butcher’s Manifesto is a newly established international NGO aiming to collect, preserve and pass on traditional butchery methods and knowledge. Butcher’s Manifesto was founded at the first Meat Summit in Copenhagen in 2016, a pioneer event that brought together butchers from around the world.

At this founding event, the 25 participating butchers agreed on five basic principles, which formed a manifesto that lays the foundation for the survival of the butcher’s trade. The five principles are guidelines for butchers to follow in order to bring back professional pride and ensure the survival and growth of the butcher’s craft.

Since the founding in august, 2016, Butcher’s Manifesto has become an international movement with a European board, a team of international ambassadors and the beginnings of an international training programme with trainers in the United States and Europe.

In 2017 Butcher's Manifesto Summit will host 50 participants in Folkets Madhus.
