"As chefs, we often underestimate “the power of the white jacket” to influence food choices consumers make. As custodians of the worlds’ food supply, we must lead by example, be responsible in our recommendations, menus, products, and in how we run our kitchens. The program reinforced the urgency of addressing the world’s food security challenges and the role we as chefs have to play."

- Chef Rochelle Schaetzl
Marketing - Custom Culinary® Europe

"The WACS Sustainability webinar was an eye opener and helped me to understand that as chefs, we do have the ability to help build a more sustainable planet. We need to be responsible stewards of our shared planet and educate fellow chefs and colleagues to help shape a better tomorrow, as well as to live our Purpose as a company."
