Sustainable diets - considering health, environment and cost
Dear Northern Branch members,

During January this year the EAT-Lancet report was published and met with mixed reactions from different fields of the food industry. The media is full of often contradictory information on what is really a nutritional and sustainable diet for humans, so much so that not only the average consumer is confused, but even members working in the field have difficulty sifting through the avalanche for the truth. Prof Friede will put these things in perspective again, so join us for an interesting presentation.
