HCM City (VNA) - Nestle Professional, a business unit of Nestle Vietnam, partnered with the Saigon Professional Chefs’ Guild to launch a programme called Vietnam Young Culinary Talent in Ho Chi Minh City recently.

The programme, which seeks to contribute to the development of the Vietnam Culinary industry and support passionate culinary talents by enhancing their employment prospects, comprises two modules.

The first module is to equip young chefs with basic knowledge on nutrition and health, train them the skills for job interviews and consult with professional chefs.

The second module is to enable them to participate in a professional training course at vocational training institutes, in which the institute and Nestle Professional will subsidise a part of the school fees for these young chefs.

The programme starts with the first module and will be expanded in the coming years. The target is to double the number of young chefs participating in the programme in 2017.

The “Young Culinary Talent” is a global initiative of Nestle Group’s Nestle Professional, which has been launched this year in many countries around the world.-VNA
