WACS logoThe World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) was founded in 1928 as the governing body for chefs organisations across the world. It brings together associations from over 74 member countries to date and provides a possible networking link with thousands of affiliated chefs and companies. Its primary objective is the education of chefs and is dedicated to maintaining and improving the culinary standards of global cuisine.

The British Culinary Federation’s national membership of WACS gives members automatic membership of this prestigious worldwide organisation. WACS membership gives the sole right to select officially recognised national culinary teams to compete in international events.

Team success is important! It inspires future generations of chefs to strive for the highest standards and take pride in their chosen profession. Consequently we fully support our national teams as they compete throughout the world, demonstrating the artistry and creativity of culinary skills in our country.
We have enjoyed outstanding success over the years, winning many awards in international competitions including the World Culinary Olympics.
