Ámaz, a restaurant located in the Miraflores neighborhood of Lima, has become the first restaurant in the world to receive the Forests for All Forever (FSC) certification. The award recognizes businesses that promote local communities and the conservation of forest ecosystems.
For over twenty years, the international nonprofit Forests for All Forever has helped to conserve forests and the populations that depend on them.
Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, the chef and owner of the renowned restaurant, said that everything in his restaurant, from the furniture to the tableware, comes from certified sustainable forests.
Mr. Schiaffino noted that the Amazon is a major provider of food and stressed the importance of generating appropriate markets for local Amazonian communities. In his mind, Ámaz is just a means of spreading awareness about the issues in the hope of creating a better and more sustainable world.
