Prior to the Jolly University Congress event, a University Boot Camp was held, where selected delegates got to learn first-hand from the culinary masters.
They were given hands-on training and seminars featuring industry practitioners such as Food Styling by Jolly University Head Master Chef Mitchie Sison, Chef Ben Bernardo, among others.
“I am delighted with the turnout of Boot Camp participants this year as we received more inquiries and entries which showed that Jolly University has gained momentum through the years. Ultimately, we aim to inspire these students and may they remember what they have learned here and apply those lessons when they have a food business in the future,” said Jun Cochanco, President of Fly Ace Corp., exclusive marketer and distributor of Jolly Food.
He was expecting to see a new generation of passionate, talented leaders and entrepreneurs arise from the Boot Camp. The participants were given a chance to advance their through the Food Congress held last March 4, 2016 at Le Pavillon, Pasay City
