Noma is one of the only Danish restaurants have received two out of three Michelin stars.
the Place has been named the world's best restaurant, as in years is the gourmet tourists and locals flowed to to visit the Noma and søsterrestauranterne 108 and Barr, which is owned by mesterkokkene René Redzepi and Claus Meyer.
But Ekstra Bladet can today reveal that these gourmetmillionærer – despite finger-wagging from the Fødevarekontrollen - does not have the priority to something so basic as to clean their stock and secure it against rats.
the Matter is that the Ingredients, 108, Barrs has two fælleslagre. One in Strandgade in Copenhagen, and at the vegetable market in Austin.
Already in 2018 lifted a fødevarekontrollør a finger in Strandgade. Skadedyresikringen and cleaning to be improved.
And a few weeks ago and discovered Fødevarekontrollen by a coincidence that Noma is contrary to the rules had an unregistered stock in Taastrup. It cost a penalty; a warning notice.
not 108 have registered in Taastrup.
Companies must register with the Fda, so we know that they exist and what they are doing. Compliance with food business operators, not the rules, we will not be able to control the bl.a. hygiene and skadedyrssikring, says Jakob Munkhøj, head in Fødevarekontrollen.
Lovbruddet got the other day Ekstra maddetektiv to observe in front of Noma, 108, Barrs legal stock in Strandgade 108 in order to examine whether the facts, as Fødevarekontrollen noted in ’18 was rectified.
It was not. By a feedthrough from the outside in to the warehouse was a hole; a possible rottehul.
- Any rat that will be in there, quickly get in there, assess the byggesagkyndige Jesper Bernth Nielsen, who in nearly 20 years has worked to ensure the buildings against rats.

at the same time was a door to the 108's kitchen unguarded open for hours, so the creeps could get access.
It was exactly what the 108 in 2018 were told would not happen.
Extra Magazine asked Fødevarekontrollen why there had not been control of the site since 2018. The same day appeared the two controllers up.

And so was the door closed, but the inside of the store was so dirty, at108 and Barr got a warning notice that the formula message on to clean. Or every night there is a fine and sur smiley.
'That is the accumulation of dirt under and around the furniture on the dry goods stock fx. behind the cabinets', writes the Danish veterinary and food administration. Photo: Danish veterinary and food administration
There was not made sufficiently pure, so that we have sanctioned for, explains Jakob Munkhøj.
- There were two places where there were gaps, with a possible risk of intrusion of pests, and it is a violation of the rules. But when it was not assessed a penalty, but as a bagatelagtig violation - so due to the fact that there was not a trace of the pests, he says.
- the Situation must of course be rectified, which the companies also promised to do. We come out on the two follow-up visits, so we will continue to monitor how it goes, warns Munkhøj.
Noma relax for a penalty in the fælleslageret in Strandgade 106, but only because Noma presented not stored food in it.
--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------
René Redzepi does not want to participate in an interview. In the spot corresponding head chef, Kristian Baumann, in writing, of 108 and Barr, while the head of communications to Inherit Podsada Krognes equivalent per. mail for Noma.
’How could you as a professional restaurantaktør be ignorant, that In itself should be sure to register storage facilities in Taastrup (denmark) at the Danish veterinary and food administration?’
’We rent the us in with one of our external food suppliers, and was in the faith that the registration, therefore, lay with this. This should, of course, we have been aware of was not the case, and is an error from our side, as there is now corrected,’ is equivalent Krognes.
’Why close not the door to the 108's kitchen, when 108 have already been instructed about the that doors should not be left open, and when it explicitly says on the door ’Keep the door closed’.
’It has been underlined and repeated towards their employees, that it should be closed. We can not answer the question of why it was open when you were here, but the door must of course be closed,’ writes Kristian Baumann
Why skadedyrssikrede In not lagerlokalerne in Strandgade 106?
'As you have seen in the inspection, has fFødevarestyrelsen found two small holes in the part of the building in strand street 106, as the restaurants use. These holes are already in the process of being rectified by the landlord. Restaurant 108 has for several years had a service contract with a skadedyrsbekæmpelsesfirma, which both include Restaurant 108 and the warehouse at Strandgade 106,' writes Baumann.
Why made sure not to make clean, so there was not a ’accumulation of dirt’ by bl.a. cabinets – also when now According to the prudential in 2018 had criticised the fact that the cabinets were dirty?
It is true that the Fda gave a warning notice to 108, and Barr, since there has been cleaning the past few months under the Coronakrisens lock down. The restaurants ' common, professional cleaning company was put on the case immediately, and a deep cleaning has already been carried out in the entire building, writes Baumann.
