Betina Bergmann Madsen

Betina Bergmann Madsen is chief procurement officer in the Copenhagen Municipality and a specialist in the procurement of sustainable and organic food for the municipality’s 900 kitchens. Since 2001, Copenhagen has had a goal of reaching 90% of organic food in all public catering within the city, and achieved this goal in 2016. Naturally, the tenders and food supply need to support this objective, which to our knowledge is the most ambitious in all the capitals of the world. Betina strives to continually improve the steady supply of seasonal and high quality ingredients into the public systems and aims to tailor the tenders to adjust to the different needs of different kitchens, but also to actively enforce the municipality’s ambition to ensure that tenders include SME’s, circular economy and Social Economic Enterprises. She is also member of the Eating City focus group on public food service.
