FFI was built by a team of forward-thinking individuals united by a shared vision: a world with a more conscious approach to consumption, a food paradigm driven by health, and a global shift in priorities to create a more sustainable future.
While global culinary institutes are most commonly known for their mission to mold students into experts of animal-based gastronomy or contenders for the highest level positions in the f&b industry, FFI takes an opposite and more authentic approach, focusing on a much bigger picture of the world at large.
As a culinary education program, we are training our students to adapt great skills that may take them to limitless new prospects and opportunities. With that comes a tremendous amount of responsibility.
As the producers of our food, chefs have the greatest influence on the behavior, habits and tendencies manifested through the daily necessity of consumption. The responsibility involved in this role is massive; it has the capacity to shape the future in one way or the other.
We challenge the conventions of today’s food paradigm, providing solutions to categorical challenges within multiple industries through the integration of elevated, authentic and thoughtful plant-based cuisine. We are committed to the constant innovation of our products and services; our responsibility to educate and inspire our peers; the conscious treatment of the planet and its inhabitants; and to empowering others through a lifestyle founded on ultimate health, wellbeing and mindfulful choices.
