What we stand for
The dairy industry is built from the ground up, and we are committed to making a positive difference to our people, our farmers, our customers, our communities and environments where we operate.
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.
The Proud to be a Chef program recognises, develops and supports apprentice chefs to become the culinary leaders of tomorrow.
At Fonterra, we believe in supporting the culinary leaders of tomorrow. Our Proud to be a Chef program helps create tomorrow’s culinary leaders through the recognition, professional development and ongoing support of today’s apprentices.
