A regional development node in Södertälje for more sustainable food production and consumption
MatLust started out as an EU project with the purpose of strengthening growth and sustainability within the food industry in the Stockholm region. Today MatLust is more than that. As a regional competence hub, MatLust Development Node hosts and participates in a number of projects aiming at transforming the food system in a more sustainable direction.
MatLust Development Node is operated by Södertälje Municipality, with Södertälje Science Park, the Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm Resilience Centre as collaborative partners. MatLust resides at Södertälje Science Park and is currently establishing a permanent regional knowledge centre and a creative meeting venue for food and sustainability in Södertälje – with actors from the business sector, academic community, public sector and civil society.
In our various projects we offer development programs, a testbed for product development, food competitions, networks and other forms of support for small and medium sized food companies that want to grow and work actively with sustainability. All free of charge for the participating companies.
Some of our projects
Funded by the European Regional Fund. Aims at increasing growth and work opportunities among small and medium-sized businesses (SME) in the food industry.
Financed by REACT-EU. Offers cost free support to SME in the food and hospitality industries that have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Main themes are digitalisation, circularity and competition.
Mineralskiftet (Mineral Shift)
Financed by Vinnova (Sweden's Innovation Agency). The goal is to develop next generation's healthy products made from whole grains. Thanks to a hydrothermal process the minerals will be made more easily available for the body to absorb.
MatLust Transnational Component
Funded by the European Regional Fund. Looks for best practice and good examples in the Baltic Sea region. Areas of interest are sustainable business models for SME in the food sector, innovative applications of public procurement and initiatives for more resilient food systems. Good examples are documented and spread via MatLust's channels.
