Med overskriften ”Danmark redder maden” tog Hendes Kongelige Højhed Prinsesse Marie i morges sammen med blandt andre minister for fødevarer, fiskeri, ligestilling og nordisk samarbejde Mogens Jensen hul på Danmarks første nationale madspildsdag 🍏🥕🥩🍞⁣ ⁣ Det skete ved et digitalt lanceringsarrangement i et køkken i Meyers Madhus på Nørrebro i København, hvor Prinsessen var med til at sætte fokus på løsninger, der kan reducere det årlige danske madspild. For tiden ligger det på omkring 700.000 tons. Se hele Prinsesse Maries tale på Kongehusets Facebookside. ⁣ ⁣ I forbindelse med den nationale madspildsdag underskrev ministeren, de danske brancheorganisationer Landbrug & Fødevarer, DI, Dansk Erhverv, Horesta og DRC – Danske Restauranter og Cafeer samt cirka 25 virksomheder aftalen ”Danmark mod Madspild”. Aftalen indeholder en målsætning om at halvere madspild i Danmark i 2030, således at fødevarebranchen leverer bidrag til at indfri FN's Verdensmål 12.3.⁣ ⁣ Datoen for Danmarks nationale madspildsdag ligger på FN’s internationale madspildsdag, International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste, hvor verdens lande opfordres til at sætte fokus på forebyggelse og reduktion af det globale fødevaretab. På verdensplan er FN-målet 50 procents reduktion af madspild inden 2030.⁣ ⁣ 📸 HANNE JUUL / ALLER FOTO OG VIDEO ©⁣

 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.

Princess Marie wore a black pant suit by Giorgio Armani and her Hugo Boss ‘Enavi’ top.

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.
