EAT-Lancet Commission wins the 2019 Utstickarpriset

Praised for its efforts to disseminate knowledge and hope about the transition to a more sustainable system


In November 2019, the EAT-Lancet Commission won the 2019 Utstickarpriset from Swedish bread producer Polarbröd for its efforts to disseminate knowledge and hope about how the transition to a more sustainable food system can have a positive impact on human health and the state of the planet. Utstickarpriset is awarded individuals and organisations who contribute to positive change through compassion, persistence and creativity.

Findings from the EAT-Lancet Commission on Healthy Diets From Sustainable Food Systems provides the first scientific targets for a healthy diet from a sustainable food production system that operates within planetary boundaries for food. The report promotes diets consisting of a variety of plant-based foods, with low amounts of animal-based foods, refined grains, highly processed foods, and added sugars, and with unsaturated rather than saturated fats.

The work behind the report is the result of a collaboration between 37 experts from 16 countries with expertise in health, nutrition, environmental sustainability, food systems, economics and political governance. Stockholm Resilience Centre was the scientific coordinator of the report.
