The World Top Gourmet Awards was established to stimulate the nation’s economy through a multi-pronged strategy. By connecting B2B and B2C customers across an integrated platform, the awards help to fuel the growth of the food and beverage sector. There are innumerable opportunities for cross-learning, business networking, business matching, industry talks, exhibitions, workshops, events, educational tours and other activities to benefit both businesses and customers.

Not just any culinary award, there is a distinctive difference as other than honouring restaurants for their superior cuisine, service and dining experiences – unique neighbourhood eateries or niche business models will also be recognised.
