Arwyn Watkins, Culinary Association of Wales (CAW) president and managing director of Cambrian Training Company, Welshpool, will serve on the Feed the Planet and Sustainability Committee for three years.
Sally Owens, cake decoration and patisserie lecturer at Coleg Llandrillo, Rhos-on-Sea, will become a special advisor to the Global Pastry Chef Challenge on the Culinary Competition Committee.
WorldChefs has developed a seven-part programme for the foodservice industry on sustainability on a global, regional and local level. Watkins is keen to address the issue of food waste and embed it into mainstream education.
Watkins said: “I’m really excited about my appointment to this important Worldchefs committee. 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?”
Owens joins the Culinary Competition Committee as a chairman of judges at Cake International, the cake decorating and baking show, and organiser of Cake Cymru at the Welsh International Culinary Championships.
Owens said: “It’s a great honour to be invited to become a special advisor to the Global Pastry Chef Challenge on the Worldchefs Competition Committee and I look forward to serving and representing Wales.”
The World Association of Chefs Societies, established in 1928, is a global network of chefs associations which aims to maintain and improve global culinary standards.
