“If you want to make an omelette, you’ve got to break some eggs” – so the old saying goes.

In Malaysia, up and coming food businesses are not just breaking eggs: they are breaking the rules. Malaysia’s food scene is seeing a transformation, spearheaded by small businesses and entrepreneurs.

At Poskod.MY, we’ve covered stories of pop-up restaurants, local franchises and underground dining – just a few of the developments that are shaking up the industry.

That’s why we’re delighted to announce that Poskod.MY will be the official media partner for PasarMakan: a new initiative to foster the growth of food entrepreneurs.

PasarMakan is one day event of free workshops and networking sessions. Bringing together business visionaries, investors and diehard foodies, Pasar Makan is a first for the Malaysian food industry.

At PasarMakan, food entrepreneurs will have the chance to learn from experienced industry CEOs and successful business models. For new start-ups and existing ventures alike, it’s an opportunity to grow, innovate and improve – completely free of charge.

PasarMakan will be held on 11 January at The Purah, D6 Sentul East. The programme is divided between a closed workshop and an open networking session:
