We put brands front and center for thousands of believers in sustainability, social responsibility, and innovation across the country with our live-event culinary series of competitions, dinners, live-fire festivals and custom programming. One thing that separates Cochon555 from other events is that we do everything with intention. Whether during intimate master classes, signature events or pop-up charity dinners, we run a red thread through all we do - creating a powerful common narrative and experience that appeals to guests and influencers alike. Cochon555 all started with a simple idea: let’s start a conversation about how our food is raised and connect stakeholders in the industry more directly.

2019 - Our Ten Year Anniversary Tour - Cochon555 is a franchise for innovative food, drink, and cultured experiences. It is also an event with a greater mission: to support family farmers and celebrate the good food movement through education and awareness. From ideation to concept development, it provides turnkey activations for partners filled with massive media impressions across social media platforms.


COCHON555 - REGIONAL COMPETITIONS (600-700ppl) This one-of-a-kind culinary tour features five chefs cooking five heritage breed pigs in a friendly competition for a cause. After a dual guest/judge vote, the winner is crowned the “Princess/Prince of Porc”. The  tour kicks off in January, connecting quality-consumers, restaurateurs, and trade with family farmers, winemakers, brewers, and distillers while contributing to charity.
