Craft Guild of Chefs launch new membership benefit scheme with 10% off selected products at CCS

The Craft Guild of Chefs are delighted to announce the launch of its brand-new member benefit scheme, available to its network of chefs and suppliers.

To launch the scheme, the Craft Guild of Chefs has united with Continental Chef Supplies (CCS), to offer an exclusive 10% discount off selected CCS products.

Available from 17th June 2019, Craft Guild of Chefs members can secure 10% off orders made with CCS via its website or by over the phone by using the code: CGCCS10. (Selected products are excluded, please see full terms and conditions)

The member discount is only available for Craft Guild of Chefs members and is the first of its kind for the Craft Guild of Chefs organisation.

Andrew Green, Craft Guild of Chefs chief executive comments:
“As part of our ongoing commitment to our members, our chairman Andrew Bennett and I have run various engagement sessions to find out what our members really want from us and how we can provide it. As a result, we are in the process of negotiating several new and exciting member benefits. We are absolutely delighted to announce the partnership with CCS as the very first supplier discount provider in the scheme.”

He continues:

“The Craft Guild of Chefs already offers its members a huge range of benefits, including access to world-leading competitions, awards, careers training, support and networking. We are pleased to add supplier offers and discounts to the Craft Guild of Chefs cannon.”

Craig Martin, national account manager for CCS adds:
“We are long-time supporters of the Craft Guild of Chefs and their work. We were thrilled to be approached to support this new initiative, and we are delighted to offer its members the chance to purchase our high-quality products at a discounted price.”

With innovation and sustainability at the forefront of their work, CCS designed The Chefs Against Plastic Waste (CAPW) campaign to offer all the chefs taking part in the competition a chance to turn their chef whites into a positive sustainability statement. To that end, this year CCS will provide the finalist and judges with a unique chef jacket made up from 19 recycled plastic bottles. The short sleeve Salerno recycled plastic bottle (RPB) chef’s jacket is 65% recycled polyester and 35% environmentally friendly cotton.
