The mission of the Swedish Nutritionist Association is to promote nutritionists in their professional life and to facilitate networks among members. We advocate topics that strengthen nutritionists’ professional positions and organize lectures, seminars, and social events for our members.
The association was formed in 1983 as a non-profit association for nutritionists with a university degree in nutrition. Since 2010, the Swedish Nutritionist Association has been a professional association within the union Naturvetarna. Membership costs SEK 120/year and presupposes that you are a member of Naturvetarna. The fee is paid in connection with the membership fee for Naturvetarna. Students in nutrition are also welcome as members.
The association’s members appoint the board’s elected representatives at the annual meeting. The board works to lead the association’s activities forward and ensure that the association’s business plan and goals are met.
