Nestlé Professional has opened registrations for Toque d'Or 2022.
The competition is open to all Level 2 and 3 students and apprentices, and includes challenges for both back and front of house competitors. Entrants can develop practical skills in areas such as social media promotion and business management.
Katya Simmons, managing director at Nestlé Professional UK&I, said: "Toque d'Or is a such a great initiative to play a part in – one of the highlights of our year. The calibre of students and apprentices we see is truly inspiring, testimony to the college lecturers and employers who put them forward.
"As well as raising aspirations for competitors and showing them what they are capable of, we're passionate about helping them become ‘industry ready' with the latest skills and learning – after all, they will be the future drivers of the industry.
"Fortunately, given our deep industry experience, we're able to provide insight on consumer trends like sustainability and plant-based diets, as well as up-to-the-minute training on approaches like social media promotion."
College lecturers, employers and apprentices should register their teams before 4 February 2022. To find out more about the competition training, format and timeline, go to www.nestleprofessional.co.uk/toque-dor
