Proud to be a Chef

Supporting the culinary leaders of tomorrow.

Every year we select a group of Australia’s most talented apprentice chefs to participate in the Fonterra Proud to be a Chef  program. It’s part of our commitment to the foodservice industry and culinary standards in Australia.

Proud to be a Chef  is a diverse and fast-paced mentoring program led by inspirational, Australian masterchefs, and gives each finalist the chance to foster life-long relationships within the foodservice community.

The winning apprentice receives an international culinary scholarship tailored to their personal interests and goals as a professional chef.
