Food plays a crucial role in our society, influencing and reflecting broader social trends. The Greenfood Insights report deep dives into these evolving trends and the latest edition covers a wide range of topics, from popular TikTok food phenomena to lesser-known items like gray peas. It also highlights the innovative Street Food Week pilot project, which encouraged thousands of children to opt out of meat through a simple nudge. The project's 780,000 portions brought not only street food into school canteens but also sparked a plant-based revolution.
For the third consecutive year, David von Laskowski, CEO of Picadeli and the Greenfood Group, is a finalist for the CEO of the Year award in the large-cap company category. Under David's leadership, Greenfood Group has witnessed substantial profitable growth, continuing to expand its footprint beyond the Nordic domestic markets, across Europe and the US. This international growth has been propelled by Greenfood's subsidiary Picadeli, which now is Europe's leading fast-food company in the healthy food space.
Greenfood continues its commitment to renewable energy and solar cells. Now, the group's food and logistics center in Örebro is getting a solar installation that covers 90 percent of the facility's electricity consumption. The solar cells are expected to generate about 230,000 kWh of electricity per year and are anticipated to reduce CO2e emissions by 23 tons CO2e per year.
This year, 40 new logistics facilities competed for the title of "2023 Logistics Facility of the Year." They were evaluated on criteria like innovation, environmental commitment, operational efficiency, and employee well-being. The results are in, and Greenfood's state-of-the-art Greenhouse facility in Helsingborg is the winner.
Drawing from a rich history of selling close to 400,000,000 salads across Europe over the past decade, Picadeli’s and Greenfood’s CEO David von Laskowski highlighted their rise as a dominant force in the healthy and sustainable food space, but also their deep understanding derived from massive amounts of data and insights.
Greenfood continues its commitment to sustainability with another significant investment to reduce its carbon footprint. At the group's new 44,000 square meter food facility in Helsingborg, they are setting up one of Sweden's largest solar installations. Together with Öresundskraft and Soltech, 3.8 MW solar panels are being installed, which will produce approximately 3.5 million kWh of electricity annually.
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) has approved the targets Greenfood set to limit global warming to 1.5°C in line with the Paris Agreement. Greenfood commits to reducing emissions from its operations (Scope 1 & 2) by 42% by 2030, with a base year of 2021, and reducing emissions in its value chain (Scope 3) by 52% by 2030, also using 2021 as the base year.
