Renowned Malaysian celebrity chef, television host and restauranter Datuk Dr. Chef Wan joined K-Eco Mart (M) Sdn. Bhd at the grand launch of ‘K PLUS Food Market’ – Malaysia’s first and largest all-inclusive premium Korean food market. The one-of-a-kind, all-inclusive food market spans over 28,000 sq. ft that offers everything from Korean inspired cafes, fresh meat and seafood corner, special Korean side dish (banchan) and kimchi corner and much more.
The food market was launched as an initiative by K-Eco Mart (M) Sdn. Bhd to connect the cultural bridge between Malaysia and Korea alongside promoting cross-cultural tourism between the two nations; as the demand for Korean products has been continuously rising due to the influence of Korean pop culture on Malaysians. K-Eco Mart as Malaysia’s leading retailer in the country that carries many sought after consumer products including food and beverages, beauty, home living and more; found it timely for Malaysians to discover and experience the ‘Korean way of Living’ through this massive one stop-hub.
Additionally, with Malaysia going through its’ endemic phase, the food market also acts as a landmark for locals who are still hesitant on traveling overseas due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Committed to giving the Malaysians an immersive Korean cultural experience, K-Eco Mart consulted Seoul’s finest interior designer prior to the renovation of K PLUS FOOD MARKET to present elevated aesthetic displays for visitors to replicate the feel of modern Korean lifestyle in the safety and comfort of their own country.
Mr. Im Chae Wook, counselor to the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, commented saying, “Standing here today and seeing this new establishment, I believe that this proves how South Korea and Malaysia are dedicated to empowering each other and I am excited for both nations to continue taking tremendous strides forward in the future.”
Datuk Matthew Lew, Chairman of K-Eco Mart said, “Malaysia has always been a country that welcomes and respects culture, and to me, that is what makes our nation so special. It is a great honor for me to be able to bridge Korea and Malaysia through K Plus Food Market and meet the consumer’s demand with the products of the highest quality and authenticity. I look forward to providing my fellow Malaysians with an all-inclusive platform to satisfy all of your Korean needs, with the launch of K PLUS FOOD MARKETt.”
Through the K PLUS Food Market, this marks K-Eco Mart’s effort in empowering Malaysia and Korea together alongside promoting Malaysia as a nation that is driven towards solidifying a friendship between nations through cross-cultural tourism and innovation.
K-Eco Market is ecstatic to welcome local and foreign visitors to K PLUS FOOD MARKET where Korean pop culture fans and K-enthusiasts can now get their hands on their favorite as-seen-on-tv items at shelves near them.
