Ricoh Malaysia GM (Marketing) Nick Tan, addressing Ricoh dealers, praised the HELP CAT team for their standard of service and quality of food.

The team of 14 Culinary Arts students was supervised by Chef Mohammed Razif Haron, Head Chef Lecturer at the HELP CAT Centre for Culinary Entrepreneurship. They spent long hours and endured late nights in preparing for the 4-day event, but their efforts were rewarded by the compliments paid to them by the Ricoh management.
