According to Sinabell, the price of a food item is not always a good indicator of its true costs. Market prices often do not reflect the social costs and therefore need to be corrected. In markets with limited competition, prices should be lower. The prices of goods that are detrimental to the environment or to consumers should be higher.
In the scientific literature, there is considerable evidence that eating healthy food according to their seasonal production
pattern goes hand in hand with lower environmental impacts. According to Sinabell's assessment, less food waste would be necessary
for achieving the goals of climate policy.
