Major helps chefs in times of hardship
Major has given a helping hand to four UK Professional Chefs Organisations to support chefs across the country
Every year on a Friday in December, known in the industry as Red Friday, Major gives money to The Craft Guild of Chefs, Culinary Association of Wales, Federation of Chefs Scotland and The British Culinary Federation to support chefs in need of help in times of hardship.
On Friday 18th December 2015 our account managers travelled to Richmond, Cardiff, Glasgow and Bicester to present each organisation with a cheque. Chris Basten from The Craft Guild of Chefs said, “I am delighted to have been presented with this cheque from Major International. It shows that they believe in the work that we continue to do within the industry, and also shows that they themselves are fully committed to The Craft Guild of Chefs, and this great industry as a whole. Major’s generosity is second to none, and the fact that we work together as one team shows the value of the partnership”.
Major donates money from every pot of product sold throughout the year and this is then divided equally between the four institutions. It is the decision of each organisation how the funds are to be used.
David Bryant, Managing Director of Major International says “At Major, we are aware how hard the UK Chefs Organisations work and I believe it’s time for us to give something back to the industry.
