Detailed background data
It has been assumed that the food processing industry is located in Denmark. Approximated from the data used for potato crisps. Potato crisps have 97% dry mass while french fries have 62.9% dry mass. Based on this we re-calculate the inputs, leading to a larger mass of product output by 0.97/0.629 = 1.54. The mass of peels and evaporated water is calculated to close the balance on a wet weight basis. Retail is modelled assuming the following storage: Cooled. See more details as well as literature references in the methodoly report on: www.denstoreklimadatabase.dk.
Data on inputs and outputs of the food processing industry is modelled using: Nilsson et al. (2011); Carlsson-Kanyama and Faist (2000)
