THE BOARD

The board of The People’s Food Assembly consists of some of Denmark's most prominent people with the food industry. They represent every link in the food chain - from the organic farmer to the conventional big farmer, from the entrepreneur to the politician and the food artisan to the consumer.

The People’s Food Assembly is organised by Food Organisation of Denmark (FOOD). FOOD is a small non-profit organisation. Their vision is to nurture the interest in Nordic and Danish gastronomy, agriculture and culinary culture.
