Investing in the Next Generation

Posted by Misty Martin on July 25, 2017

The 14th Annual Texas ProStart Culinary Educators Training Conference allowed 130 high school instructors the chance to participate in the two and a half day conference, held at the Central Texas Food Bank and the Texas Beef Council (TBC) office in Austin.  The training is a partnership between TBC and the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation. TBC knows that demand for careers in foodservice will only continue to grow, and chef education will play a vital role in industry success. By equipping culinary arts instructors with the latest, most up-to-date information and industry movements, the future workforce will also gain the same helpful knowledge about beef. TBC is a large supporter of continuing education projects like the Texas ProStart Culinary Educators Training Conference.

The Texas Beef Council (TBC) conducts the $1 per head national checkoff program for Texas beef producers and is also the contractor for the Beef Promotion Research Council of Texas (BPRCT), which administers the $1 per head Texas state checkoff program. TBC’s mission is to increase beef demand in the state through programs of beef promotion, research and education. TBC also helps fund national and international beef checkoff programs to increase marketing opportunities around the globe. The BPRCT’s mission is to improve Texas producer profitability by strengthening and expanding beef demand. The TBC and the BPRCT are directed by a 20-member board of cattlemen and women representing the state’s beef producers.
