The February Virtual meeting with the Culinary Federation Winnipeg was held via teleconference on Wednesday February 10 at 7 pm. The evening was hosted by Chef Peter Ecker who was joined by two presenters online for our members.
Our first presenters for the February Zoom meeting were Rachel Wong and David Chung from Uber Eats. Rachel and David were able to explain to chefs how the platform works, the benefits of third-party delivery and how to get signed up as a Sysco partner. Uber Eats is a technology platform helping businesses worldwide expand their reach, delight customers, and boost their bottom line. Rachel and David were able to answer a variety of specific questions offered by our local members. The full meeting is available to members of the branch.
We also welcomed Chris Sharp, national sales manager from Kikkoman who shared his extensive knowledge on the products of Kikkoman and the reasons why chefs choose Kikkoman. Chefs were able to compare the taste of real soy sauce to cheaply produced competitors. Chris took the chefs through the many steps that are taken to insure that they provide the finest product on the market, and the chefs concurred. The presentation gave the chefs the chance to taste test and compare flavor of a variety of the new Individual Sauce Packets that Kikkoman now has available with spring rolls provide Bonnie and Natalie of Binner Marketing and Sales. Chefs had a chance to sample Duck Sauce, Gyoza Sauce, Katsu, Hot Chili Thai Sauce, Hot Mustard and a staple in every kitchen, Soy Sauce. A video is available that explains the Kikkoman advantage.
