Worldchefs welcomes strategic alliance with Chef Works, new Global Partner

Paris, France, June 2017:  Worldchefs is proud to announce our newest partnership, which sees innovative and design-oriented clothing outfitter Chef Works join as Global Partner.

Through the new agreement, Chef Works has become the exclusive outfitter for the prestigious Global Chefs Challenge Finals Series – an international competition where the world’s best chefs meet to compete in the categories of Global Chef, Global Pastry Chef, and Global Young Chef. In addition, Chef Works will also exclusively outfit Worldchefs board and committee members and Congress.

“We have waited many years for the opportunity to develop a partnership with the Worldchefs,” said Neil Boston, Commercial Director at Chef Works International. “We are truly delighted that the time has finally come for us to forge a strategic alliance. As the global leader in culinary uniforms, an alliance between Chef Works and the global representative body of leading chefs is the perfect recipe for Chef Works to drive our brand equity further across the globe, dressing the current and future generation of talented chefs in all seven continents whilst working alongside the other wonderful Worldchefs partners.”

Chef Works is not your routine uniform manufacturer. With beginnings that date back to the 1960s, they have been an industry leader in the design, development and management of uniform and culinary apparel programs across the globe. Chef Works provide everything from chef coats, to pants, aprons, shoes and more.

“As the global voice for chefs, we are always seeking partnerships that can bring value to our members in 105 countries across the globe,” said Thomas Gugler, President, World Association of Chefs Societies. “Chef Works offer innovative, high-quality products at competitive prices. In addition to clothing, they also offer the tailor-made solutions to help busy chefs outfit their teams. It is this kind of added value that as a global culinary leader, we want to deliver to our member community each and every time. We could not be happier about this new partnership with Chef Works.”

The next Global Chefs Challenge and Global Pastry Chefs Challenge will take place at Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2018, July  11 – 14, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Don’t miss your chance to be part of this must-attend global event, to get the chance to meet industry leaders and global partners, learn from top keynote speakers, and gain innovation and ideas with chefs from around the world.
