Toronto Branch

Welcome to the Toronto Branch of the Canadian Association of Foodservice Professionals. (CAFP)

Thank you for visiting our site!


Our Board and committee members continue to be busy organizing and planning some exciting new events CAFP Toronto is known to host!  In general, we are focused on building value into our events through the introduction of panels and relevant topics.  We want you leaving confident in your decision, that taking take time out of your busy day to attend a CAFP event, was worth every minute!

In September, we had organized a new and exiting panel of guests that represented all facets of our foodservide industry.  With so much change going on around us, this exceptional list of guests shared their wealth of experience and expertise in foodserice with our many guests.  We were so pleased to see, so many new faces, keen to uncover new thoughts and ideas. 

September survey results indicated that the topic, panel, sponsors (food), moderator, market data, location and timing were key ingredients warranting 'very good to excellent' overall ratings.

Our theme continues throughout the year!  

November. The Changing Faces of Foodservice explored "Innovation & Entreprenurship" in the industry. In collaboration with the Canadian Chef Federation / Toronto and Humber College, on Nov. 10th participants found out what it takes to be successful on Dragon's Den. The panel shared great success stories that provided our audience some key take-aways surrounding best business practices!

JANUARY 19th we'll be partnering with DCBIN (Dietitians of Business & Industry) to discuss the new Menu Labelling regulations coming into effect.  This should be a dynamic interactive evening, that in one way or another, will have an impact on all of us, either professionally or personally!  Hear from the expert panel of guests that are actively involved in the new standards.  

FEBRUARY 9TH, TMN - Top Management Night 2017  is also "Changing Faces".  Our Committee has decided to take our celebrations to the Boulevard Club in Toronto.  We are very excited about creating this new experience and look forward to seeing you there, enjoying great food & wine, inspiration from Zane Caplansky and connecting with your collegues, friends and customers in the Industry!  You can Register now.

Look forward to connecting with members, students and guests this year!
