Our Network

GourmetPro experts are high-quality industry veterans and innovators. All of them have passed a rigorous screening process where they are evaluated on their communication skills, subject matter expertise, passion and dedication, and integrity.

The GourmetPro Screening Process

Language, Communication, and Attitude

GourmetPro is an international network. Our experts who have worked with customers from all over the world are bilingual with a business English level. You can be confident that communication will be smooth and efficient so that the job is done as defined. We also assess personality traits, selecting only candidates who are highly motivated and passionate.

Live Screening

We carefully evaluate each expert's specializations. At this stage, their problem-solving ability, critical thinking skills, and creativity are tested. We are very selective here; only “gourmet” experts with a senior level of experience or higher get through.

Case study

To further assess how our experts perform on the ground, we test them with a real-world case study where candidates must demonstrate their collective experience, practiced dexterity, and professionalism. We will only welcome those who can provide feasible and effective solutions to the network.

Continued Excellence

The assessment does not end even after they join the network. We constantly gauge and fine-tune the performance and integrity of the expert through our client’s feedback, their project’s performance, and the ongoing activity within the team. This way, we can ensure high-quality results for our clients.

The Quality of Experts

Expertise

To be able to meet the client’s needs and goals, we have built a diverse network of professionals from different fields in the food and beverage industry. They cover all the expertise and can provide top-tier services for any issue that you face.

Rest assured that we will find you the one with the most suitable mixture of experience.
