What are the societal costs and benefits of your food during the holidays?

Do you know the societal costs and benefits of your plate of food during this festive season? For instance, how much water is used to produce your meatball, how much income does the dairy farmer receive, what is the CO2 emitted during the transport of your beans?

To start the new year with a blast, True Price will organize a symposium on the social cost and benefit of food, together with Wageningen Economic Research on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Affairs. We will present the results of a research project that shows positive and negative societal effects of food in a transparent and comparable way. The project focused on these products: potatoes, green beans, minced beef, milk and chocolate. The symposium will be held on the 12th of January from 12-14 hrs at the location ‘Green.DNA’ in Spijkenisse, the Netherlands.

If you are interested to join, find more information and the registration form here (in Dutch; UPDATE: subscription is no longer possible). The language during the event will be Dutch. Due to the limited seats available, your registration will have to be confirmed.
