I want to compare the environmental impact of different foods.
"Environmental impact" defined as impact from production, packaging, and transport to consumer.
Has anyone developed a model enabling this comparison?

Hello,
We do not ourselves have a CO2 food footprint calculator.
We discuss the food emissions issue at a general level, see for instance our food webpage which includes various links to further reading:
https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/food-consumption-animal-based
https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/food-security-and-environmental-impacts

A quick search on the internet resulted in these links:
-CleanMetrics has a food carbon emissions calculator http://www.foodemissions.com/foodemissions/Calculator.aspx
-Eat Low Carbon http://www.eatlowcarbon.org/food-scores/#
-Food carbon emissions calculator http://www.foodcarbon.co.uk/

The European Food Safety Authority may have data or publications, which could also be of interest to you https://www.efsa.europa.eu/

Kind regards
