Association Caritative de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs (ACCR)
The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is one of the finest and most renowned and respected international gastronomic associations bringing together and unifying its members from all over the world with the same spirit of fraternity and goodwill. The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs also provides a bridge between different cultures and in this capacity has the vocation to support, wherever there appears to be a need, the most underprivileged.
It is for this reason that the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs decided to take yet another active and positive role in the world of food by enlarging its area of intervention to go beyond restaurants and hotels to that of 'Caring and Sharing'. On January 2, 2008, the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs officially registered a charity at the Paris Prefecture of Police, allowing the launch of programmes in the field of social development aimed at nourishing and improving the living conditions of those in need, especially children.
The 'Associaton Caritative de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs' (ACCR), which means 'charity', is the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs non-profit making entity designated with the task and objective of giving help and assistance through its project initiatives and charitable aid programmes worldwide. Moreover, thanks to its international connections, the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs can create a direct link thereby avoiding any loss in relation to the allocations of the funds: 1 €uro donated equals 1 €uro distributed.
Every member or person who makes a donation will receive the heart-shaped ACCR pin, which symbolizes the generosity and attention and care extended to others. It also is our way of expressing appreciation and thanks for the contributions received from Chaîne des Rôtisseurs members and those whose support will directly help someone, somewhere in the world.
The designated Swiss representative and member of the Board of Directors of the ACCR in Paris is Mr. Paolo Clemente Wicht, Argentier and Member of the Conseil National.
