Asia’s largest international trade event for the food and hospitality industry, the 4-day Food&HotelAsia2014 (FHA2014) came to a close on the 11th of April 2014 at the Singapore Expo. Meanwhile, the region’s most prestigious and recognized international culinary competition FHA Culinary Challenge saw over 800 competitors participating.

Throughout four more than interesting and intense days, Worldchefs hosted Chefs and curious visitors from around the world at their well-acknowledged meeting point, the official Wolrdchefs booth. Together with the entire Worldchefs crew, led by President Gissur Gudmundsson and Managing Director Ragnar Fridriksson, both the visitors and the participants were able to gather information about different Worldchefs programs such as: Judging seminars, Membership opportunities, Competition endorsements, Recognition of Quality Culinary Education for Schools and Educational institutions, and chat with Worldchefs team, who were more than happy to provide professional assistance and offer advice.
However, the event that attracted the most attention was the open floor presentation on the Worldchefs Global Culinary Certification Program.
Moreover, during the multimedia presentation international Chefs had an opportunity to get to know all about the Certification’s benefits, its online accessibility, different levels of certification provided, its international recognition, as well as to get inspired by the already certified and well-known Chefs from the spot, who were pleased to share their experience of the program.
The FHA2014 Singapore ended up in a celebratory spirit, when the Worldchefs President handed out prizes and commended both – the judges for successfully accomplishing a challenging task, and the competitors who genuinely fought and truly showcased their inspirational talent.
In conclusion, this year’s FHA Culinary Challenge Singapore promises an exciting sequel in two years. In the meantime, Worldchefs will keep its doors open for every eager food professional to approach this ever-growing family of culinarians, continue to maintain and improve culinary standards worldwide and together with its team and members make positive changes that will benefit all.
The future is beautiful, don’t get left behind!
