More than 20,000 members strong, the American Culinary Federation
(ACF) is the leader in professional and personal development for the
culinary industry. Our mission is simple: to provide the opportunity for
growth in every segment of foodservice.
ACF strongly believes in the importance of honing and developing the
skills and experience necessary for excellence in culinary craftsmanship
through competition. It is that dedication and commitment that led ACF
to develop national guidelines for culinary competitions.
Culinary competitions are a vital part of the ACF repertoire and have
been for decades. ACF-sanctioned competitions were designed to
continually raise standards of excellence and professionalism while
promoting creativity and camaraderie among culinarians long before TV
food shows became popular.
ACF, the largest group of professional culinarians in America for
more than 80 years, is home to ACF Culinary Team USA, the official U.S.
representative for national and international culinary and pastry
competitions. Three teams—national team, military team and youth
team—will represent the United States at the 2016 Internationale Kochkunst Ausstellung International
Culinary Art Competition, also known as the “culinary
Olympics,” in Erfurt, Germany.
This unique sponsorship of ACF Culinary Team USA offers positioning
and branding opportunities that place your company among “the best
of the best.” Your brand and support of ACF Culinary Team USA are
prominently showcased in advertising, electronic marketing, events,
tryouts and ACF regional and national culinary events and competitions,
as well as international and national public and media-relations
