Eating out: When organic is the logical choice, not a luxury

The New Nordic Cuisine put Copenhagen on the culinary world map. It also sparked a revolution with its focus on local, organic ingredients in season. Today, this focus is maybe stronger than ever among restaurants in Copenhagen, and you’ll find many climate-friendly and organic eating options in all price ranges from noma, and Geranium to Reffen street food market.

In Copenhagen, buying organic produce is not considered a luxury, but merely logical. Organic food make up 24% of the total food sale in Copenhagen, and 88% of the food consumption in the City of Copenhagen’s public institutions is organic.
