Building the future of food and mapping out the collaboration landscape with Orkla for a shift to a sustainable food system

Orkla Foods Sverige intends to develop a market leading approach to sustainability. This will guide their vision, mission, goals, plans and actions during the time period 2020-2030. Orkla wanted to ensure actual social-ecological sustainability to be central to all their business and product development, adding market uniqueness and value.

Planethon’s role was to deep-dive into Food Systems research in the Nordics and weave the research into a strategic plan that will define the company’s business strategy from 2020-2030 leading their transformation into a vanguard company of a sustainable food system.

The outcome of this project was a strategy rooted in scientific insights and 10 missions Orkla and other food system actors need to undertake for a sustainable food system. We integrated that research into a defined vision, prioritized missions and an action plan to reach the desired goal

“Planethon really helped us understand what problems science says must be solved, create data-driven shared missions for the industry and map the network of actors we need to collaborate with. They also helped structure our roles, governance and process to achieve this transformation.”
