Choice Foods Thailand Limited
Choice Foods Thailand Limited has been importing and distributing quality meat, vegetable and seafood products from Australia for over 48 years. They have a reputation for quality, service, value and integrity.
Their main distribution is to the Food Service and Retail market sectors.
For many years they also provided a service to individual customers via a Retail Shop at their Head Quarters in Bangkok, where you could purchase these products.
More recently, they expanded this outlet to include a top quality restaurant which is unique, whereby you could select the items you wanted from the shop and have them cooked in an open kitchen, right there, by an expert executive chef.
The Company are now further expanding their operations to prepare ‘ready-made meals’ with these ingredients, of the highest quality, in a specially designed new production kitchen, planned to open mid-2019.
This is a challenging position and we are looking for an Assistant Chef to join the existing team, to help drive this expansion.
