The expertise you need for today's health-driven marketplace

The marketplace is becoming increasingly health-driven.

Customers are demanding healthier choices.

Clients are seeking more wellness support from their foodservice partners.

Foodservice companies are using wellness to differentiate themselves.

Even the government is legislating it. 

Therefore, it is essential to offer wellness solutions with expertise in order to be more competitive and to maximize growth opportunities.

However, it is becoming increasingly difficult, costly and time consuming to gain this expertise. In addition, there is so much confusion and complexity when it comes to nutrition and it can be such a complex subject. 

It is also difficult to know where to go to get credible information. 


With our online employee training you'll be positioned to:

  • Build a strong competitive edge with a wellness-certified team

  • Increase sales, customer and client retention

  • Deliver a credible wellness program that is based on a solid foundation for growth

  • Improve employee engagement and retention
A strong wellness approach starts with building knowledge in your team and empowering them to deliver wellness with command and confidence.

But building a comprehensive, yet time-effective training program is costly and demands a lot of time and resources.

They receive consistent and credible training across the board – a fundamental key to strengthening your positioning and approach.

Succinct and to the point, this on-line training program cuts through the clutter of all the complex lengthy reports, information and misinformation on wellness and delivers the essentials on consumer wellness trends, purchase drivers, legislation, nutrition principles, healthy production and service techniques as well as marketing and communication tactics.

The program has been approved by the American Culinary Federation, The Association of Nutrition and Foodservice Professionals and the Certifying Board for Dietary Managers for continuing education credits.

The course is divided into six sections and conveniently taken on line, either all at once, or in increments depending on the employees’s preference. A certification is issued once an on-line exam is passed and it can be taken repeatedly until a passing grade is achieved.
