Focus and Food Innovation Solutions (FIS) held a joint event for budding Development Chefs in January. A real mix of over 20 Chefs attended from all parts of the industry. It was great to see everyone sharing their experiences and to get to know our candidates so much better.
We had a few short talks where the guys at FIS explained about what they do and the life of a Development Chef. We heard first-hand about the challenges in moving out of the restaurant kitchen and into NPD, along with the huge benefits it can bring for your career and work/life balance.
Feedback was hugely positive and we are already planning future events. If any of our clients or candidates have any recommendations about the types of events you would enjoy, do let us know.
Finally, a big shout out to FIS for the amazing canapes…great hospitality – thank you!
