Nestle Professional, the Nestle business that supplies the food and beverage service out-of-home industry, is helping to educate future chefs about nutrition through a new online course in the United Kingdom and Ireland. As part of its global commitment to nutrition, health and wellness, the company has created the interactive programme ‘Toque d’Or NHW’. It aims to help catering college students learn about healthy eating and drinking, energy and nutrients, nutrition needs, and diets and lifestyle.

Launched in partnership with the British Nutrition Foundation, the course also aims to help students to understand food labelling and health in catering. “Providing catering students with the necessary skills and information related to food and nutrition will ensure that they are better engaged with public health initiatives – from calorie labelling to sourcing of ingredients,” says Roy Ballam, education programme manager at the British Nutrition Foundation.

The course is available online until July 2012. A British Nutrition Foundation endorsed certificate will be awarded to those who pass. This recognises the completion of a basic qualification in nutrition, health and wellness. The course will be reviewed in July with an aim to launch it to the wider food service industry.

 “There’s no escaping the fundamental need for everyone working in the industry to have at the very least a basic understanding of nutrition, health and wellness,” says Neil Stephens, country business manager of Nestle Professional in the UK and Ireland. “The healthy eating trend has been gaining momentum over recent years. Nestle Professional is committed to encouraging the development of students’ skills in this area.”

Globally, Nestle Professional is present in more than 90 countries – with over 10,000 employees, including a large number of skilled chefs. Nestle Professional sources from 171 Nestle factories worldwide and operates 15 dedicated food service factories, a number of specialist culinary centres, and a beverage centre located in Orbe, Switzerland.
