Hjalmar Ståhlberg Nordegren is on a mission to eliminating food waste. As CEO and co-founder he has created a community that has rescued 4 million meals and counting from going to waste.

Karma did not initially start out with the ambition to solve one of the biggest environmental challenges today: food waste. Today Karma is one of the fastest growing startups in Europe, solving part of the $1.2 trillion food waste problem.

One third of all food produced is thrown away annually, resulting in 1.3 billion tonnes of waste worldwide. It’s one of the largest climate and economic issues facing our planet, which paradoxically creates a huge business opportunity.
