Every year, Festival Restaurants generate annual receipts worth millions but the trickle-down effect of the Festival extends far beyond this. MIGF impacts the entire F&B industry as well as raising the bar each year by fostering friendly competition between the market leaders. Not to mention, the country’s top chefs and F&B professionals become role models for young people joining the industry, who see a future in Malaysia rather than taking their skills elsewhere.
