Academy of Culinary Arts given ‘Royal' status

The Academy of Culinary Arts has been granted ‘Royal' status in recognition of its contribution to education.

The organisation, which was founded in 1980 to promote education in culinary and service excellence, will now be known as the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts.

Chief executive Sara Jayne Stanes said: "This great privilege is granted very rarely and is in the gift of Her Majesty The Queen, on the advice of Government.

"We understand our Patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted that the Academy has been granted permission to use the title Royal. To receive this honour in the Queen's Coronation year lends it an even greater relevance."

The Royal approval was announced at the Academy of Culinary Arts Annual General Meeting held at Coutts this week.
