Nestle Professional Toque d’Or

Welcome to Nestlé Professional’s Toque d’Or®. Launched in 1989, the hospitality competition was born out of a passion for excellence, to inspire the next generation and to provide opportunities to further their knowledge in the hospitality industry.

The hospitality industry competition aims to educate and test entrants in both practical, service-based and business-focused tasks, concentrating on key areas such as social media promotion, business management and sustainable food and drink. Not only do these challenges provide valuable hands-on experience but they give the opportunity to work with and learn from leading industry experts and businesses judging the tasks.
