Youth Talents Take Center Stage in JOLLY University Year 4
With a goal to build better future opportunities for today’s youth through business leadership and competency training, the country’s highly successful campus-wide culinary search — the JOLLY University (JU) Year 4 — returns with a full line of fun enriching activities this March 3, 2017 at the Le Pavillon Tent.
With the theme “It’s More JOLLY in the Philippines,” the fourth edition of JU ignites palates and young minds with JOLLY Congress, an interactive learning platform that gathers the country’s top industry practitioners and leaders in various fields who will share inspirational experiences and expertise. This year’s Congress will feature key speakers such as Leo de Leon of Allegro Beverage, Karla Reyes of La Petite Fromagerie, Liza Morales of CCA Manila, Kian Kazemi of Persian Grill, Marilyn Perion of UCPB, Rebecca Lee of wheninmanila.com, Ms. Earth 2015 Angelia Ong and Bryan Kong of Crazy Katsu.
JU Year 4 delivers another fitting finale as the much-awaited Grand Cook-Off is also happening at the congress. 31 participating universities will undergo an intensive training from the JU Boot Camp that will determine the best and finest culinarians.
For this year, the culinary competitions will feature four categories: Individual Category (featuring Luzon Cuisines made easy, healthy and baon-ready); Team Main Dish Category (Visayas Cuisines Made Easy, Healthy and Jolly); Team Pasta Category (Mindanao Cuisines made Pastariffic) and Team Mocktail Category (Capture the Jolly Vibe of the Philippines in a Sip). Vying for the championship titles are the student representatives from Metro Manila, South and Central Luzon.
On top of the prestige and pride of becoming JU student ambassadors, this year’s batch of grand winners will be awarded Php50,000 worth of cash and prizes, trophies, culinary training workshop under CCA Manila and an internship program under Fly Ace Corporation where they will receive comprehensive, job-ready skills development training from the industry’s best practitioners. Apart from gaining new knowledge from the youth seminars, guests will also be entertained by stage games, booth activities, and food and product samplings.
A campaign spearheaded in 2013 by JOLLY Food Line, the No. 1 canned vegetable brand in the country, JOLLY University is a campus-wide culinary competition that aims to enhance the competency of students in becoming the next generation food industry champions.
