: Jobs Transformation Map launched to prepare Food Services companies and workers for the future
MR No.: 023/23
The Jobs Transformation Map (JTM) for the Food Services sector was launched today by Minister of State for Trade & Industry Ms Low Yen Ling at Restaurant Asia 2023.
The Food Services sector contributed S$4.5 billion to Singapore’s economy and employed about 235,500 workers in 2022. Total employment, including local employment, has now exceeded pre-pandemic levels. The sector boasts a vibrant food scene with close to 12,000 F&B companies, covering a wide range of local and international cuisines, from homegrown F&B brands to Michelin-starred restaurants. To elevate its status as a leading lifestyle hub, Food Services trade associations and chambers (TACs) – Restaurant Association of Singapore, Association of Catering Professionals Singapore, and Singapore Nightlife Business Association – have committed to work with over 800 of their member companies which employ approximately 80,000 workers, to transform their jobs in line with the JTM.
