I would like to credit this to the hard work and dedication of my colleagues, CEO and management team, Business Heads, business partners and friends for making all these possible. Without their unwavering support all these years, through both the good and the bad times, Food Empire would not have achieved what it has today."

Mr Seah Kian Peng, Group CEO of Fairprice Group said, "Being recognised as a Top Influential Brand for five consecutive years is an honour and testament of the trust consumers have accorded us. This prestigious accolade spurs us on in our ongoing pursuit of service excellence as we continue to galvanise the industry to forge new standards and collectively strive to make lives better for the communities that we serve."

We will continue our efforts in enhancing retail experience to breakthrough customers' inherent expectations on jewellery brands, products and services." 

Mr David Prosser, Managing Director of Celebrity Fitness said, "We are really proud to receive the Top Employer award as recognition for our commitment to staff training and career path development.  Our common way of working, our values and leadership philosophy are building a deeper trust with our members and supporting more and more Indonesians in their pursuit of living a healthier lifestyle."

Mr Guillem Segarra, CEO of HappyFresh Malaysia, which was named as one of Asia's Top Employers exemplified a company leader who noted the importance of fostering a supportive workplace as he remarked, "Great ideas can come from anyone in the organisation, so we hire smart people and give them the environment they need to innovate.
