Maldives Launches its First Restaurant Association
Their first board, which includes a president, two vice presidents, a treasurer and eight board members, was elected recently by restaurateurs and representatives who gathered for the ceremony at Nalahiya Hotel.
The members that were elected are Ibrahim Amir of Salsa Royal Restaurant as President, Vice Presidents Nuzair Ali of Ramba Restaurant and Mohamed Shareef of Food Bank, and Hamid Afeef of Dhon Manik Restaurant as Treasurer.
The other eight Board Members are Juwairiya Wajdy of Juwey’s Café, Ali Arif of Le Ginger, Ahmed Naseem of Hut Cuisine Restaurant, Ahmed Mauroof of Symphony, Hawwa Fareesha of Marble Hotel, Ahmed Hasmath of Alfresco, Abdulla Faiz of Juwey’s Party & Catering and Hassan Hameed from Semple Café.
The association was formed to organize and conduct trainings for the industry, organize culinary challenges, and to give a better service to all customers of the industry.
Currently the association has registered 45 restaurants and cafes as their members. They are also expecting to increase 300 members within this year.
“This is not an Association for the Restaurants of Malé but whole Maldives including the restaurants and cafés in the resorts and hotels,” Ibrahim Amir, the newly elected president of the association said.
We at Maldives Promotion House congratulate the newly elected members and wish them much success with their tasks.
