13 Jun. 2024

| Bologna, Italy


As part of the FOODCoST project’s ongoing efforts, our 4th MML Workshop, titled “Fair food systems: internalizing environmental and social costs in the price of food”, will take place in Bologna, Italy on June 13, 2024! 

The event will be focused on the True Cost Accounting approach, specifically on how externalities in food systems can be internalised and how internalised externalities should be communicated to consumers via labels.  

By bringing together relevant stakeholders and specialists, engaging in dynamic co-creation activities, we hope to stimulate collaboration and innovation and identify new pathways towards “true” pricing with the objective of achieving fair food systems.

About the FOODCoST MML workshops

This will be the first in-person event in a series of 12 MML workshops that are to be organised throughout the duration of the FOODCoST project, with the goal of collecting knowledge and experiences from various external key actors, covering specific topics regarding methodology and data used to calculate external costs and benefits, as well as policy and business models.

The insights collected from the workshops will then also be analysed and discussed within the project’s Community of Practice, allowing for a constant exchange of valuable information.
