The Institute of Hospitality has announced that it will be an official supporter of the Universal Cookery and Food Festival 2021. In backing the annual food festival, the Institute of Hospitality joins many other industry bodies as supporters of UCFF.
This is the first time that the IoH, whose new chief executive Robert Richardson FIH is a professionally qualified chef, will be represented at the annual festival, which links chefs from all sectors of the food industry with the agricultural world.
Festival goers will be invited to meet the Institute of Hospitality team and hear more about the Institute’s work whilst learning about the vast and exciting opportunities and careers within hospitality, as well as the positive future in store for the industry. Majella O’Connell, recently appointed to manage the Institute of Hospitality’s social media, will be sharing her expertise on the festival’s main stage.
Majella O’Connell, said: “I was honoured to be asked to speak at UCFF due to my expertise in food photography and social media, and am proud to be part of such an esteemed and experienced panel of speakers.
“I have worked alongside chefs for nearly ten years now and whilst I am at the Institute of Hospitality, I look forward to developing new features about chefs as this is high on the agenda.”
UCFF co-founder Lee Maycock said, “It’s really unique to get all the culinary and hospitality associations together, and particularly important after what our industry has suffered in the last year. It’s real camaraderie and hasn’t been done before. From now on we can work together to become stronger. Working with the Institute of Hospitality in particular allows us to bridge the gap between back of house and front of house. One vision, one voice.”
Sarah Peters MIH, head of commercial development at the Institute of Hospitality, said: “It’s with great pleasure that the Institute of Hospitality supports the Universal Cookery and Food Festival 2021. It’s not often we get the chance to meet farmers, top chefs and food ambassadors in one go. Working together to support the various sectors and business areas of hospitality is vital for the industry’s success, and cooperation is the way forward.”
