This morning, Princess Marie attended the launch event of Denmark’s first national food waste day. Read more below.
Today is the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste and it is also Denmark’s first national food waste day. Princess Marie has been heavily involved in the fight against food waste for a few years and she collaborated in a cookbook against food waste last year. To attend this event, Princess Marie traveled back to Denmark where she’ll have three events focusing on food waste today and another event tomorrow.
The aim of the day is to focus on the Danes’ involvement in the fight against food waste and to reduce food waste in Danish homes. The Minister of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, Mogens Jensen, said: ” We consumers account for a third of the total food waste in Denmark. We need to do something about that – and we can all help to do something to save more of all the good food that today ends up in the bin”
During the launch event, which was held at Mayers Madhus but was also part digital because of COVID-19 restrictions, Princess Marie made a speech and she also took part in activities. To celebrate the day, a large number of companies in the food industry are signing up to measure their food waste in order to halve it by 2030. This is in line with the UN’s world goal 12.3 of a 50 percent global reduction. You can read Princess Marie’s speech here.
In the afternoon, Princess Marie will attend the opening of a new WeFood store before receiving an award for her fight against food waste in the evening.

She also wore her Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ black suede pumps and her old ufo black clutch.
Marie also wore her Rolex watch and her Christine Hvelplund ‘A&H’ necklace.
