Musgrave MarketPlace has announced a sponsorship agreement with Chef Network to launch 'The Chef Blog'. It will allow members to submit guest blogposts on a range of topics including key industry insights, trends and news with the goal of expanding chefs’ knowledge base and encouraging increased collaboration.
Chef Network, which was launched in February 2016 with the support of the Irish Foodservice Suppliers Alliance, currently has over 800 members and was established to connect chefs across all of the industry's sectors with its focus being on education, training and personal and professional development for chefs.
The Chef Blog will deliver an interactive platform for members to contribute guest blogposts on a range of topics including food and industry trends, Irish food heritage, seasonality, specific chef skill-sets and nurturing talent. The first post has been written by chef JP McMahon of Michelin-starred Aniar in Galway and relates to this year's Food on the Edge, the Irish Food Symposium and the 10 key things he learned from the event.
Tara Brennan, marketing manager at Musgrave MarketPlace said, "We are proud to support this new blog in conjunction with Chef Network. We understand the rapidly evolving food industry and the importance of providing a platform to assist chefs in keeping up to date with the latest trends and news. We know from our own research among our chef customers that there is a demand for the provision of more information and opportunities to network with chef peers and we believe the blog will create a strong platform to encourage this."
Ruth Hegarty, head of community for Chef Network commented, "We are delighted to have Musgrave MarketPlace on board as the sponsor of Chef Network’s new blog. We are eager to work with partners to create engaging content that is of interest and benefit to our chef members and to support the provision of a platform for chefs to share ideas with each other. As an Irish company with a finger firmly on the pulse of the latest foodservice trends, Musgrave MarketPlace are ideal partners for our new blog."
