The support from our sponsors and the hospitality industry continues to make this event possible. We remain appreciative of their support and encourage you to support them in return.

This event not only affords Wintec the opportunity to showcase our training facilities, but provides a networking platform for all those involved at the Culinary Fare to come together under one roof.

We wish all of the competitors the best of luck and look forward to seeing your creativity, innovation and flair shine through your efforts. For those of you going onto the NZ Hospitality Championships we wish you well.
