We are thrilled to announce that Master Chefswear designers Chefs Brigade Global, are now sponsors to The National Chefs Union.
Based in Durban S.A, Chefs Brigade are coming to the UK in 2022 with a whole new range of Chefs wear specially designed for the 21st Century with a totally new vision of how UK chefs could look and feel.
This family run business is working closely with Unichef in appraising just how chefs want their Uniforms to be in the future and, for the first time ever, will be producing Chefswear endorsed by the National Chefs Union.
Chef's Brigade is a chefs wear apparel brand, manufacturer and online global retailer of both men’s and women’s apparel for the hospitality industry. Supported by our brigade of highly engaged and passionate chefs around the world.
Our vision is to build up and unite our chefs. We exist to create the tools that help chefs look their very best and be comfortable in the kitchen, to unlock their full creative potential to put their culinary visions onto a plate.
Established in 2017, Chef’s Brigade is a rapidly growing family run business. We are a brother and sister team and have created magic by combining our two passions:
The hospitality industry and the clothing industry.
Brennan is our Head of Brand and Product and is responsible for creating and steering the vision of the brand and the product design that meet the needs of a modern chef. His experience comes from 25 years in working with some of the world's most renowned sportswear and outdoor lifestyle brands, from brand development and marketing all the way through to product development, production, and global sourcing.
Clairann is our Head of Sales, and her key focus is building relationships, understanding our chef’s needs, liaising with the design team and making sure they are met.
Building these relationships is the core of our business and listening to these needs is what our business is all about. Her passion and experience in the hospitality industry started from a very young age and she seamlessly progressed into the chefs wear side of the industry more than 15 years ago and has never looked back.
We are focused on dressing Chefs from head to toe in the most cutting-edge designs for Chefs of the world.
Our fabrics keep our Chefs cool but are hard wearing enough to endure the heat of the kitchen. Our designs are cleverly thought through and accommodate for all body types. Every kitchen is our family, we really do care what you wear.
"Unichef is a particularly special partnership for Chefs Brigade. Our move into the UK market, has been very exciting and to find an organisation that embraces the same ethos and has the same passion to better the Hospitality Industry, this is indeed a perfect match for us."
We look forward to 2022, where we can supply the UK market with what chefs need and want, perhaps throwing caution to the wind in regards to certain traditions and bringing Chef apparel in to the today’s era.
