Message from the President

Established in 1998 on the initiative of EKIP* – the Equipementiers du goût, France Formation Export is an association bringing together the most prestigious training institutes and schools around a common set of objectives:

- To promote the transfer of French expertise in the fields of baking, pastry making, cakes, chocolate, confectionery, ice cream, catering, cooking and grain processing.
- To meet the training or advanced training needs of an international client base.

In an ever-changing world where the gastronomy culture is becoming an international phenomenon, professionals must adapt to new requirements in order to meet customer expectations, learning how to combine tradition, know-how and innovation.

In this area, the food service professions boast a number of advantages.
At a time when all the talk is of economic recession and unemployment, these are occupations with a shortage of qualified personnel. Every day, a few more enthusiastic individuals take the decision to enter or retrain for this profession.

Our members can offer you an initial training course leading to a qualification recognised by the French Ministry of Education. We can also tailor existing training modules to provide advanced training in a particular field or technique - in the form of bespoke short courses designed specifically for you or your teams - delivered on-site or at an external location.

In the meantime, feel free to check out our training institutes and courses via our website.
