Abstract

The Nordic region shares same challenges of an aging population in which an increased number are considered as malnourished and/or suffering from loneliness (Eustat, 2021; Volkert et al. 2019; WHO, 2021). This puts a pressure on the welfare state resources (European Commission, 2021). Health authorities in the Nordic countries focus on rehabilitation welfare technology solutions and the concept of healthy aging. Furthermore, the need for considering sustainable solutions requires sustainable food products for an increasing aging population. This challenges the retail and foodservice sector to provide access to food products and meal solutions that are culturally well known, acceptable and nutritionally adequate (Justesen, Mertanen & Lang, 2018) as part of a healthy aging approach.
