EAT Foundation Partnership
EAT works for a sustainable global food system by engaging scientists, politicians, business leaders and change makers. EAT close knowlegde gaps and translate research into plans of action to help scale up solutions. EAT facilitates the development of science-based targets for nutritious and sustainable diet.
The EAT Foundation builds on the work of the EAT Initiative, created by the Stordalen Foundation and Stockholm Resilience Centre in 2013. Together with the Wellcome Trust they launched the EAT Foundation in Mars 2016 with the ambition to reform the global food system, enabling us to feed a growing global population with healthy food from a healthy planet. NCE Seafood is proud to be a partner, and believes the seafood sector will be an important actor in contributing to reaching this
We are proud to be an strategic partner of EAT Foundation.

EAT Advisory Board
The Advisory Board is made up of representatives from EAT’s academic partner institutions and eighteen world-renowned experts from digital media, the food service industry, politics, international development and more. The breadth of the group illustrates EAT’s vision of cross-sectoral collaboration. The Advisory Board aims to be diverse with respect to age, gender and geography. It is the supervisory body of EAT’s research, projects, activities and long-term strategies, and provides guidance, input and advice for the development and expansion of the EAT Initiative. This includes defining research priorities, ensuring the scientific quality of the EAT Stockholm Food Forum and EATx seminar programs, advising on new partnerships and increasing public involvement. The Advisory Board authors and co-authors academic publications and makes difficult decisions as the jury for the Local EAT Award. It is chaired by Professor Johan Rockström, Executive Director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University. The SRC is EAT’s main academic partner and the centre of EATs research activities.

The EAT-Lancet Commission for Food, Planet and Health is a group of 20 world-leading scientists from across the globe to reach a scientific consensus that defines a healthy and sustainable diet. The scientists are specialized in the fields of nutrition, health, agriculture, food policy and sustainability. The Commission will perform a comprehensive scientific review of knowledge about what constitutes a healthy diet, what is a sustainable food system and how we can provide a healthy and sustainable diet to a growing population.
EAT-Lancet Commission brings together world-leading researchers in nutrition, health, sustainability and policy, and are delivering universal science-based targets, defining healthy diets and sustainable food systems and answering the crucial question: How do we give all humans a healthy diet without depleting the planet’s resources?
In 2018, the Commission’s researchers will publish their first full scientific review of what constitutes a healthy diet from a sustainable food system, and which actions can support and speed up food system transformation, and will present its results in The Lancet, the world leading general medical journal.
The Commission’s five working groups are investigating:
- What is a healthy diet?
- What is a sustainable food system?
- What are the trends shaping diets today?
- Can we achieve healthy diets from sustainable food systems?
- What are the solutions and policies we can apply?
