Gathering chefs from around the world, the Chefs’ Manifesto aims to profile chefs’ work, shared learnings and best practice as well as empower chefs everywhere to be advocates for a sustainable food system.
Chefs are at the heart of the global food system. They bridge the gap between farm and fork – influencing what we grow, what we put on our plates and how we think and talk about food. If chefs take a lead on sustainability issues – such as tackling food waste and sustainable sourcing – diners, farmers, business and even government will follow. Through their networks, chefs have the power to curate a global conversation about food and translate the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into accessible, everyday actions in our kitchens, classrooms and communities.
