Resare Sahlin is a doctoral student at the SRC, doing research on “less but better” meat in the context of food system sustainability
Kajsa Resare Sahlin is a doctoral student at the SRC and works on sustainable eating and the role of animal source foods in a sustainable food system.
“Less but better” meat is the framing of her PhD project, looking into questions such as what ‘better’ meat actually is, how you could potentially identify and assess meat as ‘better’ and how the concept can be used to guide Western consumers towards more sustainable meat eating.
Before starting as a PhD candidate, Resare Sahlin worked at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences where she led participatory case study research on the use of agroecological practices in Swedish meat and dairy farming within the EU-project UNISECO.
Previous work also includes a mapping and analysis of Swedish consumers’ ability to make sustainable choices when shopping for meat and a collaboration with researchers from the Beijer Institute, Chalmers and Gothenburg University on policy for sustainable diets in Sweden.
