Under the aegis of the Fondation de France, the mission of the G&G Pélisson Foundation is to support and promote the development of Institut Paul Bocuse as an international culinary arts, hospitality and food service management school.

Our heritage & Values 

Notre histoire

Excellence, Generosity, Respect & Ethics

We are proud to have succeeded in making sure that our professions are now taught at University since 1999.

It takes just as long to do things properly as it does to do them badly.  We might as well do things properly.

Offering a rich learning experience & building the future

Thanks to the generosity of private and business donors, the G&G Pélisson Foundation has been able to fix 4 objectives:

New campus

Develop the facilities at Institut Paul BOcuse

Institut Paul Bocuse is a dynamic and fast-moving organisation that continually looks to adapt its training models in order to adapt to the changing requirements of the hospitality sector. By supporting the development and modernisation of its campus, the G&G Pélisson Foundation enhances the exceptional real estate assets belonging to Institut Paul Bocuse.

Award bursaries & scholarships

We believe that financial difficulties should not prevent talented students from pursuing their training in a leading higher education institution. The G&G Pélisson Foundation therefore supports deserving students through a bursary and scholarship fund as part of a widening participation initiative.

Develop innovative teaching projects

Institut Paul Bocuse has always put teaching innovation at the heart of its students’ learning experience. This is why the G&G Pélisson Foundation has decided to support the recruitment of leading academic and professional experts in areas of work. We support a range of ambitious research projects and also contribute to investments in innovative teaching and learning material.

Widen the international impact of the school

The Foundation endeavours to promote worldwide the renowned French know-how, cultural heritage and hospitality developed at Institut Paul Bocuse ever since its creation. Our work therefore plays a role in ensuring that the ambitions of the two co-founders, Paul Bocuse and Gérard Pélisson, endure by passing on with passion and modernity the foundations of the hospitality, food service and culinary arts professions to young generations across the globe.
