Year end Blog Entry
Year end Blog Entry
A great way to end the year is to summarize all of what made up the entire year. It is also a great way to start a year when we try to look back and see what we have accomplished, and more importantly, focus more on what we can do more this 2016.
2015 was definitely the year of the Korean wave. We have seen a lot of Korean restaurants opened, offering not just the famous Korean fried chicken but we have seen cafes with bingsu, similar to our local favourite, ice kachang. For 2016, for sure foodies from across the globe will definitely draw their attention here in Singapore because of the Michelin guide rating. For the bar industry, we have seen an increased in cocktail bars, and we believe, this year there will be more, because we learned that Michelin can also rate bars for their cocktails. So, let me share with you, highlights of our 2015, and hope to do more this year!
Our Hotfill (shelf stable juices which can last for up to 6 months) has had a “makeover” and we have come up with this classy wood packaging.
