The Craft Guild of Chefs (CGOC) is the UK’s leading professional association for chefs. More than 1,200 members, from every corner of the food and hospitality industry, are supported by CGOC throughout their careers in terms of training, employment, and business development.
CGOC presents competitions, awards, festivals, food markets, seminars, and training opportunities, pulling together the UK’s most passionate chefs and the guild’s 100-plus Business Partners.
Two of the UK’s most prestigious cooking competitions are the CGOC’s National Chef of the Year and Young National Chef of the Year. These events put heavy emphasis on sustainability. CGOC’s Competition briefs require chefs to produce nutritious dishes based on the Knorr Future 50 Foods list.
This commitment to sustainability is perfectly aligned with Aqua Libra Co’s own values. Like many other companies, we’re striving to help the world reach Net Zero by 2050; and, like CGOC, we believe that the best way to achieve this goal is to work closely with our corporate partners.
CGOC members share a commitment to reshape the way the global population eats, drinks, and produces food. Water, of course, plays an important role in our diets. How drinking water is provided has a massive impact on the environment.
It’s estimated that 7.7 billion plastic water bottles are purchased every year in the UK. Approximately half of these bottles are used once and disposed of. But even those that are reused will take hundreds of years to decompose.
Aqua Libra Co has been working with companies all over Europe to eliminate the demand for single-use plastic bottles and to change the way their staff, visitors, and customers are offered water.
Aqua Alto, Aqua illi, and the Aqua Bottlers dispense highly filtered chilled, sparkling, and boiling water. Built in modular form, these units can fit into any installation, saving space without limiting dispense capacity.
We’re proud to be part of the CGOC family, and we look forward to working with many of the association’s members over the coming years.
Andrew Green: “ We are so delighted to welcome Aqua Libra as one of our newest Business Partners, their ideals match just what we are about, and the values mirror our own goals. To have a Business Partner who adds value to both us as an organisation, and to our members is something we are very proud to have. ”
