Uniting The Asian Food Industry

The Asian Catering Federation (ACF)

Our Mission

We brings together organisations and personnel within the Asian food industry and works in tandem with the Federation of Bangladeshi Caterers UK, the Chinese Takeaway Association UK and the Malaysian Restaurant Association.

Our Vision

We aim to unite Asian caterers on one platform; campaign for greater recognition; achieve members’ common goals through partnerships with government and other organisations; provide help with training, and create rewarding careers in Asian catering.

Community support

The ACF will strive to deliver real returns for our members within the Asian catering industry, help them to find financial success, achieve excellence, and build customer loyalty.

The triumph of the British curry industry is indicative of the massive contribution British Asians have made – and continue to make – to our cities, our towns and our villages.
And its achievements are part of a much bigger success story – about the role of amazing Asian businesses, which number in the tens of thousands and – together – fuel growth and generate over £60 billion for our economy.
These companies employ thousands of workers across our country, brighten our high streets, improve the quality of life in our neighbourhoods and enrich our society and culture.
