Over 150 Swedish, Dutch and other European companies are a member of the chamber of commerce, which has been founded fifty years ago to strengthen relations and to promote and support trade between Sweden and The Netherlands. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce honoured Mr. Ingvar Kamprad, founder IKEA with a Lifetime Achievement Award.The evening also offered a show by the Swedish artist Malena Ernman.
The gala was held in the winter garden of the Hotels van Oranje at the boulevard in Noordwijk aan Zee. The theme of the anniversairy year of the chamber of commerce was sustainability and innovation. The two were combined in a special petitfour made from lupine proteine. The proteine can be made in an environmental friendly way, and it has a low fat percentage despite the high number of proteine it contains. Princess Victoria, who was wearing a dress of the Malene Birger A/W 2010 Collection, had the honor to be the first person in the world to try this particular petitfour.Filed under Dutch Royals, Italian Royals, Swedish Royals
