On 24 November, a first-of-its-kind contest took place at EHL: a 24-hour marathon assembling students from 6 different schools, co-organized by the Saviva F&B Chair and the Career Club. The goal? To create a foodservice concept for 2030!

EHL, EPFL, ECAL, HEC Lausanne, Westminster Kingsway College (London) and Institut de Tourisme et d’Hôtellerie du Québec (Montreal) sent students to participate in this competition. The students were divided into 4 groups which included one student from each school, so as to create a mix of competencies in each group. After 576 cumulated hours of work, nearly 80 cans of Redbull, and over 100 coffees, the groups pitched 4 very interesting concepts that each articulated technology and sustainable development in different ways. 

The winning team presented a restaurant concept that focused on education (food production in the same building, use of new technologies), experience (the restaurant as an escape), and charity/local communities. The Saviva F&B Chair Challenge Award (CHF 6,000.- for the whole team) went to:

  • Dylan Casasnovas (ECAL)
  • Ashley Gilham (WKC)
  • Roxane Henrioux (HEC)
  • Erika Palamaro (ITHQ)
  • Jennifer Roux (EHL)
  • Maximilien Stern (EPFL)

While only one group won the Challenge, the Saviva F&B Chair wishes to congratulate all four EHL students – Lisa Bianco, Ilia Pevtulidi, Jennifer Roux and Filipa Tomaz – for participating in the competition and for the great work that they did.
