Opening a catering company in Malaysia can be a lucrative business, especially since investors who provide these types of services can also engage in other, related activities like event planning, if they want to expand the scope of their business.

Catering companies can provide various types of packages to their clients, according to size and niche. Because Malaysia is a multicultural country, where cuisine varies according to ethnicity, investors in Malaysia have numerous opportunities for entering the food business.

Catering companies in Malaysia

The culinary style in Malaysia is a diverse one, which can be divided according to the three major ethnic groups that make up the country’s population: Malay, Chinese and Indian. The official religion, Islam, is also a strong influence on the country’s cuisine, in that the meat is prepared according to Halal standards.

Catering companies in Malaysia tend to the culinary preference of individuals who attend all types of events. Companies can specialize only in corporate events for example or provide the food for other types of celebrations like weddings, memorials, private or themed parties.

The quality of the food and customer service are two important ingredients for any investor who considers setting up a catering company in Malaysia. Apart from deciding on one or more types of cuisine, investors will also need to hire trained staff like chefs and waiters and prepare and store the food in premises which are in accordance with the local laws for foodstuff production and hygiene.
