For more than 30 years Claus Meyer has challenged conventional thinking in agriculture, food production and cooking. He has inspired a generation to rediscover local Nordic produce through cookbooks, TV shows, cookery schools, lectures, public food debates and produce from his own orchard.
Co-founder of The Best Restaurant in the World, noma, 3 years running, Claus Meyer, today has decided to invest himself in the idea of unfolding the potential of indigenous food cultures beyond the Nordic. When in 2004 Meyer co-authored the New Nordic Food Manifesto, he and noma were in pursuit of purity, simplicity and freshness based on seasonal foods that make the most of the local region’s climate, water and soil, but he had no firm idea about the types of impact those ideas would eventually bring.
In his inaugural talk, Claus Meyer, a CBS alumni and cand.merc.int., will share his experiences from combining social entrepreneurship, sustainability, corporate social responsibility and business.
