Chef schools

Chef schools and the broader culinary industry are key players in the culinary sustainability revolution.

Providing chef schools with sustainable seafood training ensures they prioritise responsible sourcing. In this way they also drive demand for responsibly sourced products, encouraging seafood suppliers and other restaurants to follow suit. Chefs also serve as educators when they inform diners, staff and competitors about the importance of sustainable choices.

WWF-SASSI offers chef and culinary schools around South Africa training and guest lectures, partnerships and events, by integrating WWF-SASSI messaging into teaching curriculums, offering advice on sustainable seafood sourcing for events and providing guest judges and informers of sustainability criteria at cook-off events and competitions.
