Detailed background data
It has been assumed that the food processing industry is located in Denmark. Based on ingredients listed in a product sold in France (Open Food Facts 2020y). Quantified ingredients add up to 35%. The rest is assumed to be half sugar and half glucose syrup. Energy use in manufacturing assumed as sugar candy reported in appendix 6 in Carlsson-Kanyama and Faist (2000).We assume 3% ingredient goes to waste. Retail is modelled assuming the following storage: Ambient. See more details as well as literature references in the methodoly report on: www.denstoreklimadatabase.dk.
