SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A Welsh chef has gained global recognition by being invited to serve on a World Association of Chefs Societies’ Committee.

Culinary Association of Wales (CAW) president Arwyn Watkins (pictured), who is managing director of Cambrian Training Company based in Welshpool, will serve on the Feed the Planet and Sustainability Committee for three years.

Mr Watkins is keen to embed sustainability into mainstream education and work-based training programmes, not only for chefs but the general public also, as food waste is now a major issue

Worldchefs has developed a seven-part programme for the foodservice industry focusing on issues surrounding sustainability on a global, regional, local and personal level. 

“I’m really excited about my appointment to this important Worldchefs committee,” he said. “Sustainability is an enormous issue affecting not only chefs when planning and designing menus and dishes, but mothers and fathers also. The challenge is how do we embed sustainability into mainstream education and training programmes?

“It’s an issue that makes us all think about the future, whether it’s food waste, utilising the resources available to us or food security.”

 The committee’s remit also includes Worldchefs Without Borders, a global humanitarian aid initiative that connects chefs committed to providing education and resources to those in need and afflicted by natural disasters.
