Chef Middle East Awarded Great Place to Work® Certification in UAE, Qatar, and Oman.
Dubai, UAE, April 14th, 2023 – Chef Middle East has achieved an incredible milestone! The renowned food distributor is proud to announce that they have been certified as a Great Place to Work® – across all its operational markets in the UAE, Qatar, and Oman – after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Middle East. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience.
Following its acquisition by Chefs’ Warehouse at the end of 2022 – themselves a Great Place to Work® certified company since 2021 – Chef Middle East has gone from strength to strength, cementing its position as a leading distributor in the region, and now, a certified Great Place to Work®!

The company’s commitment to its people and creating a positive work environment is evident in this incredible achievement. The Great Place to Work® Certification is a testament to Chef Middle East’s dedication to empowering its employees and providing opportunities for them to excel and grow professionally.
Steve Pyle, CEO at Chef Middle East, commented “The Great Place to Work® accreditation reflects the trust, competence, and pride of our people. This award is not only the result of the strides we have made over recent years in improving our employee experience, but also a testament to the values that our people uphold and continue to underpin through our mission to grow in the world of culinary craftsmanship.”
The certification process involved a rigorous assessment of Chef Middle East’s employee experience, culture, and leadership. The results revealed that the company has created a culture of trust, transparency, and innovation that has led to high levels of employee engagement and satisfaction.
“It is a tremendous honour to receive recognition from the Great Place to Work® based on feedback collected from our own employees. We are privileged to work with incredible teams that are engaged in their job and willing to share feedback from which we can continuously improve our work culture, and it brings me great pride that we can celebrate this recognition this year.” Added Maria Gibson, Head of Human Resources at CME.
The acquisition by Chefs’ Warehouse has further strengthened Chef Middle East’s position in the market and provided new opportunities for growth and development.
