Noma Restaurant: Top restaurant sickens 63 in CopenhagenBy Alex Jusi Madlangbayan on Mar 10, 2013 in Business, Europe, Food, Lifestyle, World •
Top Danish restaurant, Noma, reportedly sickens 63 guests last February and has apologized on Friday, March 8, 2013.
Offering a high level cuisine, Noma has been named as the world’s best restaurant for past three years.
The customers of the Copenhagen restaurant reportedly fell ill and suffered from diarrhea for five days according to Danish health officials. They suspect that a sick kitchen staff may have started the outbreak.
Noma restaurant‘s managing director Peter Kreiner admitted a flaw in their internal procedures after an e-mail from the employee reporting his sickness was not read.
Kreiner said that they “are in the business of making people happy and taking care of our guests, so this is the worst thing that could happen to us.”.
To address the situation, Kreiner explained that Noma “have worked closely with the health authorities to get to the bottom of it and find the source of infection.”
Kreiner revealed that he has reached out to their customers by having a “dialogue with all the guests who were affected and discussed compensation for them.”
Although the restaurant may not be closing down immediately, history showed that food poisoning has greatly affected some of the world’s top restaurants and forced them to shutdown operations.
