Olympic Co-Sponsors for 2016

Blog | 10 May 2016

For over three years, we have enjoyed a great relationship with the Federation of Chefs Scotland. And as of April this year, we’ve been named as a ‘FAB 50’ co-sponsor for The Scottish Culinary Team.

The Scottish Culinary Team, a collection of qualified Scottish chefs, are funded and operated by the Federation of Chefs Scotland (FCS).  They represent not only the FCS’s commitment to staff development and training within the industry but also the crème de la crème of what Scotland has to offer to the wider global catering market.  

Earlier this year the FCS invited 50 ‘fabulous’ companies to contribute and support the Scottish Team on the road to this year’s prestigious IKA Culinary Olympics in Germany.

The Culinary Olympics are by no means an easy event to qualify for and for this reason require a substantial amount of external investment and funding.  We were honoured to get involved and our contribution as a FAB 50 sponsor will go a long way to helping them compete at a well-deserved international level.

In the run up to the Culinary Olympics in October this year, the team have a busy ‘home turf’ schedule that includes conferences, fundraising events and exhibitions – all of which Holchem will be attending.  These events offer us the chance to network and strengthen our key relationships with other industry professionals, the wider chefs’ environment and the various home country associations.

Mike McHardy (Holchem’s Divisional Manager for Foodservice, Hospitality and Retail) commented: Holchem is not only passionate about providing hygiene solutions for the catering industry; we are passionate about investing in the catering industry.  The Scottish Culinary Team represents both the Federation and their Country and we are delighted to be involved as co-sponsors.  Not only are the Culinary Team raising the profile of cooking and catering but they are also providing a welcome boost to the Scottish export and tourism markets.

Representing a ‘coming-together’ of the catering industry - the Scottish Federation of Chefs is a key relationship for Holchem and one they will continue to build upon and develop in the years to come.
