HOSPITALITYCHAIN.COM ( Australia )
Global Food and Hospitality Suppliers Directory
The beginning of our creation came to life from a 50th birthday present in 2005.
The founder Ian Sutherland from Melbourne Australia was asked by his wife Katherine how he wanted to celebrate his birthday.
After much thought Ian’s reply was that he would love to go to the 10th Anniversary of the world horse racing cup in Dubai.
Ian along with 5 of his friends arranged the trip of a lifetime.
Dubai at the time was creating a tourist mecca of hospitality, business centers and attractions that had never been seen before.
During the trip Ian could see that this vibrant Middle East city was all about attracting tourism, hospitality and business well after the oil had gone.
Ian and Katherine’s working careers had similar paths in hospitality, event management , international trade, and in the domestic and international exports of perishable food and beverages
They had worked with many international visitors and expatriates over many years and from all walks of life. They were aware of the fact that regardless of culture or nationality – there was one common theme to ‘welcome’ and that was to ‘meet, eat and greet’.
People love to try the various foods, beverages, cooking methods and styles. In their travels, people including expatriates often miss the delights of home and they also miss the food and beverage favorites of other regions after they return home.
Trading of goods has always been a fascinating way of life for centuries and continues even more so today with the current food and hospitality phenomenon. On the journey home Ian could not stop thinking about how people find all the delights of the culinary world. The usual answer was – the internet – but after months of internet surfing and research he could not find any dedicated one stop search facility for the worlds finest food and boutique beverages, hospitality equipment, supplies and logistics services.
The Hospitality Chain concept was born as a free for all to use search engine showcasing premier and unique products that are not commonly found at supermarkets and convenience stores.
Let the Journey Begin Our Concept
Our concept is to build the world’s first dedicated one stop search engine showcasing fine food, exotic and unique beverages, premium beers and ales, fine wines and hospitality equipment and supplies.
These are displayed in their global regions and include, specialty food stores and catering companies, logistics providers such as freight forwarders that specialize in air and sea freight of perishable foods, refrigerated transport, cool room storage, customs clearance, and global removal companies.
Other portals include global expat clubs, specialty foods, beer, wine and hospitality expos, as well as global hospitality and event management courses, cooking, barista and sommelier classes.
Fine wine and premium beer enthusiast can browse our dedicated liquor stores and distributors portal to find links to the world’s best growers and producers along with the finest whiskeys, sake, ciders and spirits. Additionally liquor stores from around the globe can freely, and in their own time, conveniently search for new products to put on their shelves.
Our mission is to be the first port of call to the culinary world and foodies in general – Offering a truly dedicated search engine linking the finest hospitality products and services and at the same time providing a social media hub for the industry through our 3 blogs – wine blog, chefs blog and beer blog.
Our focus is to continually update and develop this unique platform, concept and brand, and we do this by employing passionate staff and contractors that strive for excellence and are committed to our development and growth.
We aim to have over 75,000 selected products and services listed by the end of 2016 and will we continue to search for premium products to feature – as we do not showcase the mass commercial products commonly found on supermarket shelves. We plan to provide apps for our food, wine and beer pages and will continue to update our extensive data base with regular and up to date related news.
