 Development & Training Initiatives at FSAA

We recognise that the foodservice industry thrives on its dynamism, fast-paced nature, and at times, its demanding challenges. However, the deeply rewarding personal and professional fulfillment it offers is undeniable.

At FSAA, our dedication and commitment to our members is unwavering. We strive to empower industry businesses and professionals with initiatives that not only aid them in their day-to-day operations but also pave the way for future opportunities.

Our Tailored Programs and Industry-First Initiatives

Strategic Programs 
Every program we deliver is strategically planned specifically with foodservice professionals in mind. With a dedicated focus on best-practice programs and personalised management opportunities, including mentoring and upskilling. Our programs are aimed at all levels of the supply chain, from entry level through to the leadership team.

Management Scholarship 
Invest in your future with our annual business scholarship (valued at $20,000). Many of our programs are ‘industry firsts’ providing a competitive advantage for participants.

Beyond conventional face to face workshops, we offer online courses that are invaluable for all levels of the industry. 

Think Tank – Pail Program
If sustainability in foodservice matters to you and your business, our Pail Program is a must-follow. Guided by FSAA board member Eugene Visione and CEO Minnie Constan, we’re focusing on reducing plastics and promoting responsible recycling. After the Today & Tomorrow Conference, APCO was so taken with our Think Tank’s initiatives that they’ve pledged their support. It’s a thrilling endorsement that adds even more weight to our work.
