Culinary Arts Development Trust
The Culinary Arts Development Trust (CADT) is a non-profit charitable trust formed in January 2015 by a trio of industry professionals to help expand the hospitality industry through competitions, events and community activities.
The CADT promotes the culinary arts in New Zealand as a career option for anyone interested in developing their professional experience through culinary competitions. Working with local councils, government bodies and communities, the CADT encourages, fosters and oversees New Zealand culinary talent and the creation of relationships within the industry, with an overall awareness on healthy eating.
The Trust is currently involved in two events: the National Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge (NSSCC), and the New Zealand Culinary Journey.
