|BANGKOK, THAILAND (18 July, 2018) – Leading Asian restaurant operator, Mango Tree Worldwide, has been honoured at the largest and most prestigious event dedicated to the transport food & beverage industry, FAB 2018.
The global conference, which took place in Helsinki on 20th and 21st June, culminated with a gala dinner and the FAB Awards 2018. At the glittering evening ceremony, Mango Tree scooped the “Best Individual Food & Beverage Offer of the Year in a Railway Station” award for its Mango Tree Kitchen brand in Japan.
In doing so, the Asian company secured its position alongside some of the world’s leading transport F&B operators. Trevor MacKenzie, Mango Tree Worldwide’s Global Managing Director, was invited to speak at last year’s FAB event. He used the global platform to discuss the strong rise of transport F&B in the Asia Pacific region, which currently accounts for more than one-in-three travellers globally.
“The Asian travel boom has presented tremendous opportunities for the F&B industry. Asia Pacific is now home to the world’s busiest railway station, second busiest airport and eight of the ten busiest international air routes. Transport F&B operators who want to prosper in future will need to successfully cater for Asian appetites,” Mr MacKenzie commented.
“At Mango Tree, we have our roots in Asian culture and understand the needs of consumers in the region. We have developed a successful strategy of providing authentic Thai and Asian cuisine to diners in prime locations with high footfalls, such as airports, railway stations and popular shopping malls. We also have a wide range of brands that are suitable for a variety of different occasions, from full-service Mango Tree restaurants to convenient Mango Tree Cafés & Kitchens,” he added.
