BBM Enters 2022 Inspiring Young Chefs in the Maldives

Bestbuy Maldives Pvt Ltd (BBM), in keeping with its philosophy of helping the industry, has engaged with promising upcoming chefs to support them under its program ‘BBM-Inspire’.  BBM sponsored six students of the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism Studies of The Maldives National University to the World Chefs Congress & Expo 2022. The event is to be held from 30th May to 2nd June 2022 in Abu Dhabi.

World Chefs Congress & Expo brings together chef delegates and professionals from five continents to network and expand their professional bonds. The unique program delivers presentations and workshops from leading experts in the industry, impactful educational programs, including the World Chefs Educators’ Forum, specialised events designed to uplift the next generation of chefs such as the Bill Gallagher Young Chefs Forum, the Global Chefs Challenge culinary competition, an international trade exhibition, and diverse activities to enhance both your personal and professional network.


Over the course of 92 years of history, World Chefs Congress & Expo has been organized in 38 cities around the globe. Since 1928, World Chefs Congress & Expo has united a global community of chefs and cross-industry innovators to explore the past, present, and future of the culinary trade.

The Congress is a platform to connect with thought-leaders and key influencers from progressive, relevant industries for an immersive program designed to promote collaboration, build relationships, and set light to a shared vision for the future of hospitality.

BBM, as one of the leading suppliers of food; bakery; cooking ingredients as well as non-food offerings to Resorts; HORECA; and the mainstream consumer market in the Maldives, has taken the initiative over the years to groom Chefs in the country by providing them the opportunity to attend various world competitions; conferences; training and Masterclasses locally and internationally. The aim is to enhance their knowledge and skills to be on par with world-class professionals in the industry, which has brought immense pride and recognition for the Maldives in the Culinary World.
