Our head of wellness and nutrition for London, Andy Aston, has been elected as Wellness Ambassador on Craft Guild of Chef’s 2021 committee.
At the Craft Guild of Chefs AGM, newly appointed chairman Matt Owens announced four newly created positions across wellness, youth, social media and member benefits. There was heightened interest in positions this year, with multiple nominations put forward for several categories.
Each of the new roles represent the growing needs of the Guild’s members and have been created to strengthen the Guild’s status as the UK’s leading chef organisation.
As Wellness Ambassador, Andy plans to further develop the Guild’s wellness culture, ensuring it is positive, energetic, mindful and inclusive. He proposes to set up live one-to-one and group sessions to embrace these goals, including talking to students at colleges and universities. His plans will continue to build upon the Guild’s relationship with charities including Kelly’s Cause, The Burnt Chef Project, Beder and Beyond Food Foundation.
Admired for being BaxterStorey’s key influencer in driving wellness and nutrition initiatives across the London region, Andy regularly hosts wellness labs for chefs, with the purpose of educating and inspiring teams, celebrating foods in season and collaborating with industry friends.
Commenting on the new role, Andy said: “I’m delighted to have been elected on the committee as Weleness Ambassador, an amazing opportunity and that I am very grateful for. I’m looking forward to working with all the committee members, business partners and our chosen charities. Watch this space!”
Congratulations Andy, we look forward to following your journey with the Guild!
