The esteemed Michelin plaques were awarded to Croatian restaurants included in the Michelin guide for 2022.
METRO, a leading international wholesale company, has been closely cooperating with Michelin chefs for many years and awarded distinguished accolades to the recipients. They create unique products that are designed and perfected together with the best chefs in the world, such as the Metro Chef and Metro Professional brands.
“The commitment of Croatian restaurants in continuously maintaining the quality of the offer and the effort invested in creating a gastronomic offer, and thus in strengthening tourism and the recognition of Croatian gastronomy, are an indisputable element of high quality, which is confirmed by the new Michelin guide. Our intention is to be the preferred partner of the HoReCa sector and to further expand cooperation with local producers and in this way to implement local ingredients on the menus of top restaurants,” said Imre Horváth, President of the Management Board of METRO Croatia, during the award ceremony.
Given that top gastronomy contributes to an unforgettable destination experience, the significance of the Michelin award is also recognised by the Croatian Tourist Board (CNTB), one of the event’s partners.
