RÅHANDEL

22 August 2022

RÅHANDEL
Copenhagen, Denmark

THE INNOVATION:

RÅHANDEL (Raw trade) is a Danish foodtech startup with headquarters in Copenhagen. Råhandel started up in the summer of 2017 with a few producers and a warehouse in a garage for delivery and distribution of goods. In August 2021, more than 200 producers across the country have chosen to become part of Råhandel, and they have over 125 active buyers on the platform. Råhandel dreams of paving the way for a new and better food system, where there is room for both the small local sausage maker and the innovative startup, which uses residual products from beer production to develop new sustainable foods.

LOOKING AHEAD:

Råhandel’s model is working well, but is looking to further mature their business model as they move forward. In addition, improving transparency of their trade, the flexibility of their webpage and tools and focus on short distance trade will be key steps for accelerating.

Info about the Innovators and the Innovation portraits Catalogue

FoodSHIFT 2030 aims to launch an ambitious citizen-driven transition of the European food system towards a low carbon circular future, including a shift to less meat and more plant based diets. This transition is necessary in order to address the pressing challenges for food and nutrition security, contribute to the EU commitment of reducing GHG emissions by at least 40% by 2030, and revitalize urban-rural linkages and partnerships.

To do so, it establishes FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs for maturing, combining, upscaling and multiplying existing food system innovations across nine front-runner city-regions. In turn these innovations contribute to the FoodSHIFT vision.

An Innovation Catalogue called “Innovation Portraits” was created to snapshot each of the Food Innovations connected with each of the FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs (FALs) across the 9 city regions.

Info about the Innovation Portraits Catalogue

The Innovation Catalogue will snapshot each of the Food Innovations connected with each of the FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs (FALs) across the 9 city regions. Each FAL has a dedicated innovation focus and each chapter will present innovation cases from a particular FAL. For each of the innovations presented, a snapshot of the innovation concept and purpose will be given, alongside the key impacts the innovation has in relation to the FoodSHIFT Impact Pathways and the acceleration ambitions of the innovation.

In addition, each innovation portrait is also categorized according to its Innovation Dimension. These dimensions indicate what kind of innovation is being presented, and where in the value chain it plays a role. This is indicated by these tabs. The dimensions are defined as follows:

Product – Innovations in this category address new or updated products, including quality, safety and market impact.

Process – These innovations are relevant to new technologies for processing, logistical improvements, infrastructure and new/improved services.

Social – Innovations in this category are relevant to changes in behaviour (e.g. consumers/citizens), development of new relationships and inclusiveness.

Governance – The innovations address policy developments, including food planning, subsidies, taxing, certificates & labelling.
