Hormel partners up with Culinary Institute of America

In a recent news release, Hormel and the Culinary Institute of America announced they were partnering up to offer advanced classes to professional chefs. The curriculum was chosen by both institutions in order to provide an education opportunity that had been in the field for more than five years. The four sets of three day sessions will give chefs an opportunity to focus on creativity, innovation, leadership and management. Upon graduation from the program, the students will have advanced certification from the CIA and become a member of the Hormel Circle of Innovation.

Dennis Gottsch, the vice president of marketing in Hormel’s Food Service division had this to say about the partnership:

We want to invest in the future of the culinary arts, creating an innovation-focused program to prepare today's best and brightest for leadership in the field. The values of innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship are at the heart of Hormel Foods' long-standing heritage. We are honored to partner with the CIA, the world's premier culinary college, to build this exciting and influential program.
