Welcome to SUSDIET


The SUSDIET Research Project: Towards Sustainable Diets in Europe

The SUSDIET project is a research project funded in the framework of the ERANET SUSFOOD Call. Its main goal is to identify sustainable diets compatible with consumers' preferences in Europe and analyse the public and private policies wich could favor their adoption.

This project is funded by the national funders involved in the ERANET-SUSFOOD Consortium and the Daniel and Nina Carasso foundation

The SUSDIET consortium is composed of 15 highly-experienced teams from 9 European countries. The approach is multi-disciplinary, with experts in economics, nutrition, consumer research, public health, and environmental science.

Final report SUSDIET octobre 2017

The goal of this report is to present the results obtained in the project regarding the definition of
sustainable dietary recommendations, the consumer preferences and their trade‐offs between
multiple sustainability aspects, and the public policies aimed at favouring the adoption of more
sustainable diets.
