The World Gourmet platform was established in 2017 to recognise the diversity of the hospitality and food and beverage (F&B) industries. It is also to show appreciation to individuals who have made remarkable efforts and contributions to ensure quality service, quality food and beverages, as well as a dining experience to bring the F&B and hospitality industry to greater heights in the region.

The 4th World Top Gourmet Awards 2022 were officiated by YBhg. Datuk Azman bin Yusof, Secretary-General to the Ministry of Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP). The event celebrated Malaysia’s recovering hospitality and F&B sector, which has contributing significantly to Malaysia’s national Gross Domestic Product value (GDP) over the years.

With Malaysia’s endemic phase, the 4th World Top Gourmet Awards was a reference point for local and international visitors to visit restaurants, cafes, and unique eateries that thrive in neighbourhood hawker centres or niche locations. This was one of World Gourmet’s key efforts in assisting small, local F&B businesses to adapt to the country’s ‘new normal’ and helping them through its economic recovery stage.

YBhg. Datuk Azman bin Yusof shared, “Our F&B industry has been contributing immensely to Malaysia’s national GDP. The revenue of our Services sector, in the first quarter of 2022 alone, has generated around RM473 billion including the wholesale & retail, and accommodation segments.”

“At the Ministry of Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP), we thrive to develop business opportunities and the socio-economic standing of our Malaysian citizens and it is great to see international world-class chefs, as well as organizations such as World Gourmet, be a medium for our F&B sector to introduce themselves on a national and international scale which will aid tremendously in helping them elevate their businesses, especially during Malaysia’s recovery stage.” he added.

Ms. Peggy Chong, President of World Gourmet, said, “2022 has been a vital year for the F&B industry as they progressively recover or reboot their businesses from the pandemic. World Gourmet aims to contribute our part in helping our F&B players by showcasing our F&B market players by providing business networking events, industrial talks, exhibitions, and workshops; inviting them as vendors for touristic food tours and many more activities to benefit their businesses, customers, and the community.”

Datuk Dr. Chef Wan, Malaysian Celebrity Chef, TV Personality & Restauranter said, “Malaysia is a very diverse country and there are many factors that list us as such, but I’m sure one of the prominent factors that we can all agree on would be our food. Having a platform such as World Gourmet and the initiative to boost our F&B industry will spark interest and inspiration within inspiring chefs, restaurateurs, and business moguls to upskill Malaysia and achieve the goal of making our country a Southeast-Asian food paradise.”
