Webinar: Opportunities and Challenges in Cambodia’s Food & Beverage Industry


In this webinar, the British Chamber of Commerce Cambodia will present their activities and how they can assist British Companies looking to expand into the Cambodian market. Cambodia’s growing urban middle class, supplemented by a significant expatriate community, increasingly frequents restaurant franchises.

A few local “mom and pop” eateries emulating American-style fast food restaurants are popular and busy, such as doughnut and hamburger establishments. Other brands such as Starbucks also find their market share in Cambodia growing each year. Others such as Hard Rock Cafe have established themselves in the major cities of the country, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

With 50% of the population under 30, young Cambodians are curious to try different food products from all around the world. For example, the opening of AEON mall and other stores have introduced Cambodian people to Japanese Products very successfully.

Major American soft-drink companies have bottling plants in Phnom Penh, while Cambodia’s air and land links to Thailand and Vietnam make it easy for local restaurants to secure adequate supplies of fresh ingredients that meet Western standards. The government offers generous investment incentives in the agricultural sector, which would potentially be available to any franchise interested in local production.

Significant opportunities exist in the range of fast food/drink options from hamburgers to coffee shops to mid-range restaurant franchise chains. There may also be market potential for establishments that offer casual sit-down dining in Phnom Penh.

The British Chamber of Commerce Cambodia was founded as the British Business Association of Cambodia in 1995 by Senaka Fernando MBE. In 2013, it was officially registered as a Chamber of Commerce with the Cambodian government. The Chamber is also a founding member of the European Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia.

In accordance with the Chamber’s Constitution, BritCham Cambodia state:

“Our aim is to provide a forum for British business people having an interest in Cambodia to meet together in a spirit of friendship and cooperation for mutual benefit and with a view to fostering good commercial and social relations with our Cambodian counterparts and the community at large.”

The objectives of the Chamber focus on:

  • Assisting its members in building their business networks
