Drink Sake, Eat Sushi

Mr Douglas Foo
Founder & Chairman
Sakae Holdings Ltd

Sakae Sushi is a Singapore-founded trendy, quick-service kaiten (conveyor belt) sushi concept that has become synonymous with a fun-filled, value-for-money and healthy dining experience.

Serving Japanese cuisine, and catering to customers craving affordable and quality Japanese cuisine, Sakae Sushi is the flagship brand of Sakae Holdings Ltd that has been listed on the Singapore Exchange since 2003, and is the first name that will come to mind when Japanese food is mentioned.

Brought up by a strict and thrifty father, Mr Douglas Foo, Founder and Chairman of Sakae Holdings Ltd learnt the value of money early on in his life. As a schoolboy, the budding entrepreneur would save money by walking half of his commute to school and then back home, instead of conveniently taking two buses. The money-saving lesson and mentality he fostered is one that helped him raise the money to fund his many businesses. Another childhood trait that he fostered well into his working life is Mr Foo's belief in the importance of planning and managing one's time well.


About 20 years ago, the visionary realised that while Singaporeans enjoyed consuming healthy Japanese cuisine, the masses could not afford to indulge in it due to its high pricing. To make this healthy cuisine available for the masses, he researched and studied different ways, and introduced a simple three-tier pricing system which offers customers a no-frills dining experience.

Today, with over 200 gastronomic creations carefully conceptualised and crafted by its chefs, Sakae Sushi's customers can indulge generously in Japanese cuisine made with fresh and healthy ingredients, including Vitamin E enriched rice.

Today, Sakae has become the benchmark for excellence where quality and service are concerned, and continues to churn out newer innovations such as a patent portable conveyor belts for private dining events.

Mr Foo believes that it is imperative that life and business have meaning. Fittingly, the word 'Sakae' in Japanese means 'growth' and 'prosperity', and also represents 'Drink Sake, Eat Sushi'.

Business Times, Singapore

Worthy captains in their respective industries, Megamas Training Company of Brunei Darussalam and Robert Bosch of Malaysia earned their honour for having a distinct competitive edge. They set the industry trends, and have commendable best practices in place.


To be an industry champion, Megamas has consistently remained focused on its core belief that workers' safety must always be the first and foremost priority. Improving HSE performance is a collective effort which requires diligence and the rewarding of good performance.

Megamas offers a whole range of HSE consultation and training solutions for any industry. HSE management involves managing, controlling and handling all aspects of health, safety and the environment in the petroleum industry.



The company was the first in Malaysia to provide training courses for Maritime, Offshore, Transportation, Environment, Materials Handling and other industries, as well as consultation services for HSE policy, documentation and safe systems of work.

The company's reputation for international, high quality training, along with its totally integrated site has ensured its successful continuation of training provision to major clients such as Brunei Shell Petroleum, TOTAL, BLNG and Petroleum Brunei.



Bosch is where it is today due to its independence in financial management, strength of innovation, quality and reliability, global presence, efficient processes, and forward-looking human resource development.

Robert Bosch GmbH (Bosch) was founded in 1886, and is headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. Bosch Malaysia began operations in 1923. The company has three manufacturing arms in Penang providing car multimedia systems, power tools, and automotive steering.

Bosch is lauded for its independence and financial strength, strength of innovation, quality and reliability, global presence, efficient processes, and forward-looking human resource development.

Interestingly, Bosch is not a publicly listed company. 92 per cent of the company's shares are held by Robert Bosch Stiftung, a charitable foundation. This structure ensures the Bosch Group develops and implements long-term strategies while staying socially-minded.
