[Bangkok, May 15, 2023] – Healthy Food Asia is pleased to announce the fourth installment of its popular Healthy Food Talk series, featuring a dynamic networking event and thought-provoking discussion on the topic, “How Restaurants Can Serve the New Generation of Customer Demand.” The event will be presented by Tor Penguin, a renowned Thai Food Influencer, and will take place on May 12, 2023, at Canes Vegan, a leading casual dining restaurant in Bangkok.

The Healthy Food Talk series aims to foster dialogue and inspire innovation within the food industry, particularly in the realm of healthy and sustainable food choices. This edition will delve into the evolving preferences and expectations of the new generation of customers and explore strategies that restaurants can employ to meet their demands effectively.

Tor Penguin, an influential figure in the Thai food scene, will bring his unique insights and experiences to the forefront as he shares valuable perspectives on how restaurants can adapt and thrive in the face of changing customer preferences. Attendees can engage in an informative discussion that covers topics such as plant-based options, sustainable sourcing, allergen-friendly choices, and other aspects of the evolving food landscape.

Mr. Tor Thanapob Vongchinsri, the digital food influencer said “In the SME world, we are considered small fish in the ocean which puts us at a disadvantage in the market. You don’t have to immediately turn yourself into a big fish to meet the demands of the market and capture all of the customer. What we could do instead is that we have to gather a group of small fish and turn ourselves into a large group of small fish to create a new ecosystem. A group of small fish can be implying to us to create a community and create new business opportunities.”

The event is proudly sponsored by Meatly, a leading provider of high-quality, sustainable meat alternatives. Meatly’s commitment to offering delicious plant-based alternatives aligns perfectly with the mission of Healthy Food Talk #4. Their support ensures that this event can reach a wider audience and continue to drive positive change within the restaurant industry.

Ms. Voralun Taepaisitphongse, founder in residence of Meatly said “How can we all cooperate and move forward together with the new generation? At Meatly, we are leading the trends. Alternative proteins prove to be more efficient and more sustainable. Approximately 60% of global meat consumption is estimated to come from plant-based protein in 2040. New generations tend to choose more efficient options. Whether they are lower in calories or higher in protein. In addition, meat consumption is a major source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the process of production. Causing this to enhance the plant-based trend even further.”

To enhance accessibility, Healthy Food Asia will be providing live coverage of the event on their social media platforms.
