Electrolux Professional has launched the Taste the Stress campaign to help champion a leaner, healthier, more sustainable and profitable kitchen.
A recent survey* for Electrolux Professional found that 79% of chefs in North America experience negative stress at work at least once a week and almost half (44%) state that they have been on sick leave due to stress – with the industry suffering as a result. The Taste the Stress campaign aims to raise awareness about the growing culture of negative stress in professional kitchens, challenge the perception that great tasting food requires a stressful kitchen, and lead to a happier, healthier more sustainable workplace.
“We live in a time when people care more about the story and process behind the food on our plates. But there’s a missing link in the farm to table movement – chefs. We believe that great food can be created through a happier, healthier work-life in the kitchen, and that’s why we wanted to test if negative stress really is indispensable,” says Corey Siegel, Electrolux Professional Corporate Executive Chef for North America.
