Did you know that despite our best efforts, food-borne illness rates in Australia and beyond are not falling? It’s a concerning trend, especially considering that a significant number of these outbreaks occur within food service operations like restaurants and caterers.

That’s why it’s time for a fresh perspective on how chefs acquire and apply food safety skills. Traditional food safety training methods like one-off units at trade schools and one-size-fits-all online training simply aren’t cutting it anymore. We need a more effective approach—one that resonates with chefs and empowers them with practical knowledge.

That’s where Think ST Solutions and the Australian Institute of Technical Chefs come in. Together, we’re reimagining the learning experience for chefs, prioritising engagement and relevance. No more dry textbooks or tedious quizzes. Instead, we’re leveraging the power of video content and practical workshops to deliver the latest information in a dynamic, informative way that can be applied directly on-the-job.

If you’re eager to enhance your food safety skills, we invite you to explore our collaborative efforts. Check out the Think ST Solutions YouTube video “The Future of Building Food Safety Skills” to learn more about our approach and how you can get involved. Let’s work together to make a meaningful difference in the culinary world.
