Food, cooking and the passion with which it is associated are fast becoming topics of enormous interest to the public, and while chefs have less mystery and are more accessible to the consumer than ever before, their skills are still held in extremely high regard. It is through your membership to the South African Chefs Association (SACA), and by default to the World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS), that those skills are nurtured, supported and built upon.
SACA is a non-profit organisation representing in excess of 6000 of the country's finest chefs, restaurateurs, educators, learners, culinarians and other interested parties. With established branches across the country and a network that reaches all four corners of the globe.
The SACA website - www.saca.co.za - links local chefs, trainees, hospitality industry players and other interested parties to colleagues and information from around the world, while the Centre for Culinary Excellence (CCE) is home to one of the greatest collections in the South African culinary and hospitality industry - and THE definitive reference source for industry, both physical and virtual; offering SACA members an all-access pass to a vast collection of books, magazines, videos, multimedia and menus, as well as invitations to attend our annual Infochef conference, and other educational workshops run throughout the year.
On signing up as a SACA member you will receive a SACA pin, certificate and membership card. You will also have the right to use the
designatory letters appropriate to your type of membership, while Corporate and Training Provider members may use the SACA logo on
stationery and create a logo hyperlink linking your website to ours. Members receive SACA's official magazine, CHEF! for 12 issues per year, regular correspondence, updates, industry information and invites in the form of emails and sms’.
