Thanks for the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Fish Fry Day Campaign launching by Australia’s food brand Pacific West, which will run from June till July 2016 to encourage Malaysians to eat more fish for better health.

The Fish Fry Day campaign’s main objective is to create awareness amongst Malaysians on the benefits of eating fish at least 2 to 3 times a week as well as introduce Pacific West’s wide range of value-added fish products to customers.

“A study in 2014 by Infofish revealed that Malaysians are among the world’s top fish consumers, eating at least 56.5kg of fish per person each year. This statistics is way above the world average of below 20kg per capita, and is even slightly ahead of Japan. What this indicates is that Malaysians are already informed of the goodness of a fish-rich diet, which will benefit one’s total health and wellbeing. Our Fish Fry Day campaign is a corporate effort to continually remind Malaysians of this good habit where we consume fish on a regular basis for better health,” says Mr. Saw Lip Teik, Director of Pacific West Malaysia.

To further reiterate the campaign’s message, Pacific West has published a recipe book collection by celebrity chefs such as legendary Australian TV personality Peter Russell Clark; Astro TV presenter, Yum Yum Publications owner and author of several recipe books Agnes Chang; South Africa’s Pinnacle Chef and esteemed judge of the World Association of Cooks’ Societies Garth Stroebel; Chef Zam and Bryan Ong, as well as Pacific West chefs like Garry Edson, Mario Bruno, Neil Cane, James Semple and MC Leong.

The chefs have developed their own recipes using fish as the main ingredient with easy-to-follow steps. Printed copies of the recipe book will be distributed during Pacific West’s nationwide roadshows at retail stores from June to July 2016 and as a complimentary collection with selected publications.

Via the Fish Fry Day campaign, Pacific West will sponsor a full-year’s supply of Pacific West value-added fish worth RM60,000 to 3 orphanage homes – Children’s Protection Society (CPS) and Shan’s Children Home in Penang, and House of Joy in Kuala Lumpur, as part of its corporate social responsibility. This sponsorship not only introduces the goodness of Pacific West products to the children but also exposes them to the benefits of eating fish in turn teaching them about healthy eating as well as providing quality food as part of their diet.
