ámaZ becomes the first restaurant in the world to receive the FSC certification – a recognition for businesses that promote the maintenance of forest ecosystems and local communities.
Forests for All Forever (FSC) is an international non-profit organization that for over twenty years has been taking care of forests around the world and the communities that rely on them. From the floors to the ceilings, the furniture, and tableware, all come from sustainable certified forests, says Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, Chef, and owner of Ámaz.
The Amazon is a huge food provider with much yet to be discovered and integrated into our lives. While doing so, it is important that we value and generate appropriate markets for the local communities, Pedro Miguel adds. ámaZ is just a vehicle to generate consciousness about these issues and hopefully, construct a better world.
At the end of the event, ámaZ treated its guests to an amazing display of original cocktails and wonderful food using mainly the ingredients from the Amazon.
