Together these three concepts form a holistic understanding of the food system. Diet for a Green Planet is relevant for anyone who eats, but more specifically for catering, dietists, chefs and for professionals related to planning of diets and menus. Ecological Regenerative Agriculture is in the first hand relevant for farmers and professionals related to agriculture and physical planning, but also for anyone who eats food and is concerned with health in a broad sense. Sustainable Food Societies is related to the ideas of local cluster development and learning. It is about capitalising on the quality of supporting local Ecological Regenerative Agriculture and infrastructure including dairy, slaughter, mill, logistics and consumers that understand the ideas behind Diet for a Green Planet.
The two BERAS projects developed both research reports, education materials, follow up projects and networks. To access these – please go to the BERAS Library. The materials are when not otherwise stated co-funded by EU and are available for free download.
