AMI Group Partners with The Burnt Chef Project

Launched in 2019, The Burnt Chef Project is committed to creating an open dialogue about mental health within the hospitality sector. Their recent studies revealed that an alarming 84% of 1273 hospitality professionals surveyed had experienced mental health issues during their careers. Moreover, less than half felt comfortable discussing these issues with their colleagues.

AMI's collaboration with The Burnt Chef Project represents a significant step towards acknowledging and addressing mental health issues within the hospitality industry. We hope that this initiative will create a 'new badge of honour' within the sector, where mental health is regularly discussed, policies are reviewed, and all employees feel supported.

Join Us for a Burnt Chef Demo at the Taste of Travel Theater on Tuesday June 6th at 12:15pm!
