100 per cent organic meat


Linda Genborg 2012-04-10

Gothenburg will be the first city in Sweden to serve 100 per cent organic meat in its schools and nursing homes. 

“We hope to stimulate more farmers to have more organic meat,” says Kia Andreasson local government commissioner from the Green Party to Metro newspaper.

She hopes the decision will have positive effects on the environment.

“Meat is very climate changing, and we think the demands that are set for organic meat coincide with good animal keeping. Organic meat is very good, but also more expensive, which means vegetables are required to supplement the food, which we also want from an environmental standpoint.”

Last year, 22 per cent of the food that was served by the City of Gothenburg was organic, a big increase from the 16 per cent in 2010. By 2014, the City aims to serve 50 per cent organic food.
