Restaurant Owners and Chefs Can Win P100,000 in This Culinary Competition

If you're thinking about opening your food business, this year is probably the best time to do it. And if you already have your own food venture, you might want to consider expanding it because the market is relatively healthy. More Filipinos are now more willing to spend on food and the experiences associated with eating. So it would be a good idea to invest now while the industry is  growing.


How often do you get rewarded for doing something that you love? Probably not as often as you want, but some days you get lucky and you trace it back to where it all started: an idea, a spark, a gut feeling that you took a risk with.



Unilever invites restaurant owners and chefs, to join Unilever Food Solutions’ Choice of the Nation competition. All you need is an innovative recipe for a mayonnaise dip, and you’re one step closer to winning up to P100,000.
