Goals

1. To create a platform

… For large and medium exclusive party caterers on which the sharing of knowledge, experiences, best practices and developments (specifically organisational issues, staffing, turnover volume, financial management, local and international market situations, suppliers, etcetera) are main issues.

2. To create transparency

… In this line of business for participating party  caterers by interpreting these data and sharing them. The topics are:

  • International trends;
  • Technical developments;
  • Improving relationships with other stakeholders within this industry

3. To develop a quality label

… For EPCAS participants which can be conveyed in their external communication, guaranteeing external parties that they are dealing with a certified company.

4. To map the professional education

… And influencing institutes for education and the developments on the labour market, to increase numbers of schooled staff in Europe.

5. To influence European regulations

… In order to create a uniform and workable European legislation for the areas that concern caterers.

6. To join forces to reduce food waste

… In the catering industry, by providing our members with up to date information, and hands-on tips and tricks, regarding possibilities to work on this matter.

7. To provide our members with insights

… In the developments in the industry, by shining light on current issues and bringing in (branch) experts to share their knowledge.
