About SVH

The goal of SVH (Stichting Vakbekwaamheid Horeca) is to increase professional competence in the hospitality industry. To achieve this goal, SVH develops teaching materials and teaching methods for (vocational) education, trainers and entrepreneurs.


About 30,000 students use the teaching materials that SVH publishes. Now that digital education has increased significantly and is indispensable, it is important to adapt teaching materials to this. Scanned books and flat images are no longer relevant. How can pupils and students learn the subjects as effectively and interactively as possible in a digital way? SVH asked MetaChef.

“It's nice that we can now view all the products at home, which makes learning a lot easier”

Sam Wetering, student at SVH

Our solution

MetaChef has an extensive 3D collection of all possible food products. For SVH, access to this collection is the answer to their question. Digital education has taken off and teaching materials have to keep up with this development. Therefore, the 3D models from our extensive database have been integrated into the educational material of SVH.

VMBO and MBO schools that use the SVH online learning platform can now view all our 3D models in the categories of meat and fish products, vegetables, fruit, bread and cheese. These digital twins are lifelike and provide valuable information about a product and how a product is put together or can be prepared. It is a fun and realistic way of learning, which ensures that knowledge is retained better. At the same time, teachers can use the 3D models during their lessons to explain the theory.
