Food waste in public kitchens

2017 Service Design

In collaboration with the city of Malmö, students in the Service Design course investigated the issue of food waste in facilities such as kindergartens and elderly care homes.

Students conducted their projects in a co-design manner, including extensive fieldwork and prototyping and a roadmap for how to deploy the concepts.
