HCMC – The online food delivery app, BAEMIN Vietnam, officially introduced BAEMIN Academy to the public and its merchant partners on April 8.
The BAEMIN Academy was established to create and nurture a learning ecosystem, including diverse types of training content and formats to provide a platform for the sustainable success of all partners in the food and beverage sector in Vietnam.
At the event, representatives of the National Institute of Food Control and the HCMC Food Safety Management Authority shared knowledge about the current governmental food safety management and control and food safety hazards backed by practical examples, as well as real-life cases.
The merchant representatives said this was an opportunity to help them understand current regulations, improve their products and foster trust with customers by meeting their needs and wants.
At the launch of BAEMIN Academy, Jinwoo Song, CEO of BAEMIN, said, “BAEMIN Academy is a testament to BAEMIN’s serious and long-term commitment to our merchant partners to help them raise the bar and achieve sustainable growth. We will constantly invest in and focus on educational initiatives to help improve the lives not only of our partners but also of our users and the relevant stakeholders. We hope that the academy will also be able to bring about practical benefits and aid the success of merchant-partners in Vietnam.”
In the future, BAEMIN Academy will constantly expand and diversify its training programs, updating content that is not only useful for partners’ businesses but also responds to changes in the food technology sector.
In addition to the practical and easy-to-use online content posted on the academy’s official website, BAEMIN will also organize offline courses and sessions to help maximize the potential of its merchant partners.
