The 5th HoReCa (hotel, restaurant and catering) event features career promotions, income generation tips and chances for operators to experience innovations in food businesses. Professional chefs, stars and artists who are experienced in food and hotel businesses are there to share their ideas and expertise throughout the four-day event.

Mrs Suchada Itthijarukul, the managing director of Siammakro Public Company Limited, says that the company organizes the Makro HoReCa 2010 festival at Halls 2 and 3 of the IMPACT Exhibition Center in Muang Thong Thani on March 18-21, 2010, with the theme of “increasing business values and developing on innovations constructively” to enable hotel, restaurant and catering (HoReCa) operators who are Makro members and general operators to increase their competitiveness and develop the standard of their food and service businesses. The event enjoys sponsorship from over 260 business partners of Makro including Nestle (Thai) Ltd, Pacific Fish Processing Co (PFP), ThaiNamthip Co, government and private organizations, and the Thai Restaurant Association which are organizing activities to increase the skills of operators.

In this year’s fair, the company also promotes its project to create jobs and increase income.

The company opens classes of snacks like fancy Luk Chub (crushed bean dipped in jelly), cupcake decorations, steamed tapioca balls with dory fish filling, fancy mushroom sushi, bread and custard, and multicolor salad sauce by teachers from the Suan Dusit Rajabhat University. A course can be concluded in a few hours with certificates for trainees.

“The festival is the important and grand annual event that the company organizes with the determination to accelerate the development of hotel, restaurant and catering businesses which are growing every year. The event allows Makro’s business partners to meet, share their knowledge and introduce their products directly to customers. This benefits the customers and the operators who look for new ideas and business opportunities,” Mrs Suchada says.
