Matfer Bourgeat has been supporting professional chefs with quality tools for more than 200 years. The work we do in designing, crafting, and distributing our products is inextricably linked to the success of restaurants and the wellbing of the dedicated individuals that power them.
Like everyone in this tight-knit industry, we’re dismayed at the number of restaurants around the country that have had to shut their doors, lay off staff, and make sudden and difficult sacrifices in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the National Restaurant Association, America’s restaurants comprise a $899 billion industry, providing paychecks to 15.6 million Americans. The Independent Restaurant Coalition estimates we account for 4% of US GDP. The success and resilience of our restaurant industry is as crucial to the strength of our economy as it is to the strength of our neighborhoods and communities.
Until June 1st, Matfer Bourgeat USA will donate a portion of all profits across all platforms to the James Beard Foundation’s charitble efforts to support restaurants during the COVID-19 pandemic.
