International Culinary ID

International Culinary ID

Culinary ID is a unique identification program that is launched by ACOHI (Asian Countries Chamber of Hospitality Industry) for the individuals/organizations/corporates  who are working or aspiring to work in the hospitality industry at a City, State, National & International level. It is similar to an Aadhar card that verifies one’s personal details, but it also provides information about one’s professional career and achievements in the hospitality field. Broadly defined in 3 categories Professionals, Services & Products.  

Having a culinary ID for the above mentioned categories can bring many advantages to the individuals and the industry as a whole, such as enhancing one’s professional image and reputation in the industry, facilitating one’s national & global mobility and recognition along with easy acceptance for individuals, products & services in the Hospitality Industry of India & Asia.

This is the first programme in the entire world for the recognition & mapping of career, products & services in the Hospitality Industry of India, Asia & World to make sure there is abundance of quality in products & human resources which are being sourced for our Hospitality Industry through various channels. The tough Culinary ID process marked by BOG of ACOHI ensures the right people, products and services at the right place in the industry in a much more organized, dignified and branded way.

In the early days a lot of individuals, products and service providers used to enter the industry without proper background, education, skill  sets and no one used to get bothered about it which resulted in poor standards of products and human resource in the industry which is no longer the situation now.
