The “Stræberen” honorary award is awarded to a person who has excelled in the fight against food waste and was founded by the organization De Samvirkende Købmænd. The organisation thought that today was the perfect occasion to award Princess Marie as today is Denmark’s National Food Waste day.

About choosing Princess Marie to be the recipient of the award this year, the CEO of DSK, John Wagner, said: “The princess has made a huge public information effort in the service of the good cause.” He also noted that Princess Marie was the patron of the government food summit “World Food Summit – Better Food for More People”, that she welcomed children in her own home to taught them about food waste and that last year, she co-authored a cookbook against food waste with Selina Juul.

 The award ‘Streberen’ is a sculpture of 26 kg. made by the now deceased sculptor, Torben Bøgh Hansen, in 2008. The recipient keeps it for a year and then joins the CEO of DSK and all the previous winners in deciding who should be the next recipient. Tonight, previous recipients attending the ceremony included Selina Juul – the founder of the Stop Wasting Food Movement who won it in 2018 – and Klaus Jørgensen who won it in 2019.

Princess Marie also made a speech during the event. I will update the post once the speech is available.

Princess Marie wore a fully repeated outfit tonight. She repeated the Diane von Furstenberg ‘Silas’ dress she first wore in Uganda last February. The dress is sold out in Marie’s exact print but it is still available in pink here.

She kept the same accessories as with her previous outfits as she wore her Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pumps in black suede and her old ufo black clutch.

Alongside her usual stud earrings and bracelets, she wore her Christine Hvelplund ‘A&H’ necklace and her Rolex watch.
