On organising this workshop, Albas CEO, Tim Murray, said:
Alba continues its efforts to bring in high calibre speakers to develop our Management team.
The Albas often often cooked dinners for large groups of Italian actors - including celebrities such as Al Pacino - at their Los Angeles home.
Francine and Jamie Alba, both raised in Italian families where hearty home-cooked meals were the day's highlight, will bring that homemade taste to the area when their restaurant, Sisley Italian Kitchen, opens Sunday.
The secret of our success is that we treat our guests like family,'' Francine Alba said.
Alba Management has also announced an upgrade to the existing Merit System to include safety in the performance criteria.

As a key component of the Alba SafeWay initiative, the CSM programme provides the key building blocks in ensuring 'zero harm' is achieved for all contractors in every area of the company's operations.

CSM is a vital component of Alba SafeWay, a safety improvement plan being implemented in coordination with the Health, Safety & Environment Department and leading global consultancy DuPont Sustainable Solutions," he explained.
That was not the only award Alba has received for the third consecutive year.
