Corporate Membership

The Master Chef of Great Britain was formed in 1980 to provide a forum for the exchange of culinary ideas and to further the profession through training and guidance to young chefs.

The Master Chefs of Great Britain seeks to promote all that is best about British cuisine and produce available in this country to both the chef and the consumer. The MCGB supports the campaign for healthy eating by encouraging the use of fresh, quality produce in kitchens around the country. Its members are particularly interested in sourcing local ingredients and in supporting small producers. The association and individual members provide demonstrations at both trade and retail shows and many offer cookery courses at their restaurants. All these activities are reported in our newsletters.

The Master Chefs of Great Britain looks to build long term relationships with companies and to offer a degree of exclusivity on individual projects recognising that no one company can support all our activities in any given sector.
