BSCC Annual Award 2020
Elsa Bernadotte, co-founder of Karma
One-third of all food produced is thrown away annually, resulting in 1.3 billion tonnes of waste worldwide. Karma enables rescuing unsold meals. Since it’s founding, Karma, in part spearheaded by Elsa Bernadotte, has taken on a role of educating and re-evaluating the food industry. With digital transformation, speaking to a broad spectrum of consumers, producers and enablers, Elsa solidly represents a new generation of thoughtleaders. How food is perceived is now elevated in UK politics, with former prime minister, Gordon Brown, taking a stand; “A no deal Brexit threatens the UK’s food supply chain. Imports of almost a third of our food could be subject to disruption.” With presence in the UK, Karma promotes and fosters the special relationship that exists between Sweden and UK.
