Abstract [en]

It is evidently clear that the current global food system urgently needs to transform to a sustainable food system However, there is no consensus on what a sustainable food system looks like. Furthermore, there is a lack of discussion about desired food systems and how to accelerate the transition towards a desired food system. Therefore, this study researches perspectives on a desired food system and pathways to reach it. Through the theoretical framework of the Multi-­‐Level Perspective with three additions, this research employs a case study of Swedish niche actors, who are trying to change the food system to a more sustainable one. The findings give the niche actors' visions on characteristics of a desired food system, including production, processing, distribution and consumption. Also multiple leverage points are proposed that could create change to, or accelerate a sustainable food system transition. The research employs a personal focus by researching the process of personal and societal change to more sustainable niche practices. Hereby this study aims to contribute to studying processes of how sustainable food niches become mainstream, and the wider debate about sustainable transition theory.
