Way forward towards prosperous, inclusive development


KUCHING: The organisation of the Sarawak Gastronomy Incubator (SAGO) is important to ensure the state’s economic development is prosperous and inclusive for all Sarawakians.

Sagah speaks during the function.

Education, Innovation and Talent Development Minister Datuk Roland Sagah Wee Inn said it would definitely help the traditional food and beverage (F&B) services industry to innovate and stay ahead of the digital age.

“F&B industry is the backbone of our state’s economy. It is also one of the main contributors to the economy as well as a source of income for most communities in Sarawak.

“I am happy because this programme is not only able to emphasise how to prepare a good meal, but it also focused on how to manage the business,” he pointed out when officiating at SAGO Incubator Programme at The Grounds Premium Co-Working Space, at The Hills, today.

Apart from that those who participated in the programme could also take advantage of the use of digitalisation, in addition to being able to penetrate foreign markets.

Furthermore, he hoped that food entrepreneurs like this could create more job opportunities, as well as contribute to the growth and development of the F&B services industry in Sarawak.

“I would also like to congratulate all nine participants who were selected for this programme.

“In the meantime, we also hope that these food entrepreneurs can be expanded to the global level, not just in Sarawak,” he said.

Meanwhile, a total of 30 applicants applied to participate in the SAGO

Incubator programme which was held for the first time in Sarawak.

The 11-week programme aims to equip food entrepreneurs with the world of business and food as well as the digital innovation skills they need to take their business to the next level.

The programme is supported by TEGAS Digital Village, Supreme Group, Pullman Kuching, Culinary Heritage and Arts Society Sarawak (CHASS), Green Buddy, Kedey Kamek, foodpanda, Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC), New Sarawak Tribune and Suara Sarawak.
