Hey, who doesn’t love bacon?
Wait, okay, there are those that aren’t exactly fans of pork, but in Randers, Denmark, in a move to preserve food traditions, politicians have decided to mandate that pork be a must on school menus.
Frank Noergaard of the Dansk Folkeparti (Danish People’s Party) explained that, “The signal we want to send here is that if you’re a Muslim and you plan to come to Randers, don’t expect you can impose eating habits on others. Pork here is on an equal footing with other food.”
The Dansk Folkeparti’s Spokesman Martin Henriksen underscored that their party is simply, “Working nationally and locally for Danish culture, including Danish food culture, and consequently we also fight against Islamic rules and misguided considerations dictating what Danish children eat.”
While the new legislation pertains to public institutions in Randers, if you’re planning on a visit we recommend you get in the mood for some flæskesteg or stegt flæsk.
