The main objective of SCA is to be the official voice representing chefs working in Singapore in various engagements with the local community, government and fellow food and beverage associations.

The educational and social activities promote interaction and networking among members and helps to train the culinary workforce to improving skills and productivity standards in their respective workplaces.
