FlashPepper Partners with Chefs Collaborative

FlashPepper and Chefs Collaborative

Our job here at FlashPepper is to connect you – the chef/operator – with new products and ideas that will improve your business in some way. That’s why we have partnered with an amazing organization that  cares deeply about sourcing, cooking, and serving BETTER food – Chefs Collaborative!

Their Mission: Chefs Collaborative is a national nonprofit network with a mission to inspire, educate, and celebrate chefs and food professionals building a better food system.

So in doing what we do, we’ve gathered a handful of manufacturers whose products and stories fall in line with this mission to build a better food system from the ground up with better quality ingredients with the chef and consumer in mind. These 4 companies will be joining us at the Chefs Collaborative summit April 10-12 in New York City so be sure to get your ticket now and stop by to taste the difference quality makes.
