Pittsburgh Chef Helps Develop Global Anniversary Menu for 110,000 Employees

Pittsburgh, May 20, 2013 –As Bayer marks the company’s 150th anniversary of its founding this year, the company will hold an Employee Celebration Day luncheon for all 110,000 global employees on June 18, serving one international upscale menu to every employee, on the same day. The anniversary menu was created using the expertise of five global Bayer Celebration Chefs, including the Executive Chef at Bayer’s Pittsburgh campus dining facility, Jeff Sinciline.

“As we celebrate this significant milestone, we are thrilled to express appreciation to our dedicated employees by joining together to share a meal in celebration of Bayer’s 150th anniversary,”said Jerry MacCleary, President, Bayer MaterialScience LLC, and senior representative for Bayer in the Pittsburgh region.   

In preparation for the Celebration Day anniversary meal, Chef Sinciline and other Celebration Chefs worked for months in advance to develop global recipes with high-quality, fresh ingredients that are available worldwide, taking employees on a culinary trip around the globe while preparing the meals onsite at Bayer locations. 

The Anniversary Menu includes items such as Kung-Pao Chicken, Orange Salmon with Ratatouille and Fresh Fruit with Raspberry Coulis and Dark Chocolate. Employees at Bayer’s Pittsburgh site and around the world will enjoy the customized recipes Chef Sinciline contributed to the menu, such as Couscous Salad with Cinnamon Almonds and Mint-Kissed Strawberry Lemonade. Chef Sinciline will be preparing more than 3,000 lunches for Bayer employees on June 18, with 25 percent of ingredients sourced from growers and producers of food from the Pittsburgh region.

“Around the globe, celebrations are traditionally marked by communities, families and friends joining together for meals,”said Chef Sinciline, who is a team member of Parkhurst Dining. “As Bayer’s employees in the Pittsburgh region join their colleagues from around the globe in celebration, the anniversary menu offers globally influenced recipes for a truly unique dining experience.”

In addition to the Celebration Day luncheon, Bayer’s yearlong anniversary celebration includes numerous global and U.S. events focused on the company’s employees, neighbors, customers, partners and the scientific community. For more information, visit www.150.bayer.com.
