Congratulations to Oaxen Krog & Slip! They have not only retained their two Michelin stars, but were also awarded a special prize at the Michelin Guide ceremony in Trondheim, Norway in February 2020.
Sustainability is becoming a big part of our lives. Here in the Nordic countries, many people recognise sustainability as a way of life. Nordic chefs are also leading the way when it comes to focusing on locally-produced ingredients; they are setting the standard for the rest of the world to follow. In addition to awarding Michelin Stars, Michelin launched a new symbol. The symbol is a green clover, which Michelin will award to restaurants that promote ‘sustainable gastronomy’.
We are happy and proud, but not surprised, that Oaxen Krog & Slip received one of the first sustainability awards. Magnus Ek, who runs Oaxen Krog & Slip, has been involved in sustainability for many years. Together with his restaurant colleagues, they have addressed all aspects of sustainability. This has included everything from animal welfare and farming and agricultural methods to working conditions and employee well-being.
It’s not surprising, therefore, that Oaxen Krog & Slip took home this prestigious award. Congratulations again and keep up the amazing work!
