SVALBARD, Norway - May 29, 2019 - PRLog -- NORWAY'S ECO-CHEF, BENJAMIN VIDMAR, BLAZES NEW TRAILS IN THE ARCTIC WHILE ALSO MAKING A GLOBAL IMPACT IN THE SUSTAINABLE FOOD INDUSTRY.

Longyearbyen| Norway—MAY 23, 2019  [BENJAMIN VIDMAR]

Longyearbyen, Svalbard is a tiny island town in Norway that proudly boasts its reputation as being the northernmost town in the world. The town is also notorious for its harsh temperatures, rugged terrain, and three months of permanent darkness. All of which begs the question; how is it possible for 2500 people to dwell in this town?

In the past, the town relied heavily on imports for most of their needs, including food. Due to extreme cold, Longyearbyen is constantly covered in permafrost. Making for poor soil quality and ground unsuitable for growing food.

Residents were forced to pay outrageous prices for frozen, low quality food to be imported by boat or plane.
After eight years of being fed up with the towns lack of a local food source, Benjamin Vidmar, a eco-chef started thinking of ways to change the game and fix the towns broken food system.

With prior knowledge of sustainability, dedication, and innovation he is doing just that! Vidmar says that he fell in love with the Arctic town instantly but as a chef it was for difficult him to be complacent with the way things were.

The company has become the largest provider of produce on the island and Vidmar happily supplies local restaurants and hotels with his goods. As the company grows, Vidmar hopes to tackle the islands other problem...waste!

Because of isolation, inhabitants are forced to have their waste shipped and or dump it into the ocean. Vidmar's use of red worms to compost has alleviated some of the problem, but Vidmar intends to make the island completely sustainable in the near future. With his recent success at doing what many thought was the impossible—there is no doubt that he will!

Ben most recently was featured on a BBC World Service special: "Meet The Artic Farmer Growing Food in -30C". His video is rapidly garnering likes, shares and world-wide audience engagements. He is a visionary and his future certainly looks bright. Click on this link>>https://www.facebook.com/bbcworldservice/videos/862008287492773/
