|Webinar| COVID-19 Effects on the F&B Industry [Partners’ Event]

August 13, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Dear SwissCham Members and Friends,

We are delighted to invite you to our webinar on COVID-19 Effects on the F&B Industry on 13 August 2020 at 12 pm. 

This event is in proud collaboration with the Swiss Chamber of Commerce in Singapore.

The Covid-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the F&B industry as many countries enforced lockdowns which affected operations and customer behavior. In this webinar session, two SwissCham members will give a presentation on how Covid-19 impacted their businesses and their strategies to survive the crisis.

Our guest speakers Adrien Desbaillets (Co-Founder/Managing Director, SaladStop!) and Cherylyn Wee (Country Manager, Laederach) will elaborate about their experience during COVID-19 and beyond – “the new normal”.

With best regards,

Your SwissCham Team


Adrien Desbaillets

Co-Founder/Managing Director, SaladStop!

Adrien is the Co-Founder and Managing Director of SaladStop!. Having grown up in the hospitality industry in Asia, Adrien and his father felt a need for healthier food options in Singapore in 2009. This escalated into a vision of bringing something innovative, fresh and tasty to increasingly discerning and health conscious people. Today, SaladStop! operates over 50 outlets across Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia, Japan, Korea, Indonesia and Spain.

Adrien is a Cornell University Graduate, and worked as a consultant in the hospitality industry for many years. Adrien most recently held the position of Vice- President – Development and Acquisitions with Kingdom Hotel Investments, spearheading all investment opportunities for the group in China.


Cherylyn Wee

Country Manager (Singapore), Läderach

Cherylyn is the Country Manager for the Läderach Singapore team. While she was still with the Uber Singapore team, she chanced upon Läderach at their first Christmas pop-up store to test the market here and instantly fell in love! When the opportunity to join the team in bringing Läderach to Southeast Asia presented itself, she jumped at the chance and has never looked back.

Läderach has since opened their first two stores in Southeast Asia, and most recently expanded their online sales platform to deliver chocolates to 13 other countries in the region.

Other than being passionate about bringing the world’s best chocolates to everyone, Cherylyn is also always excited to talk about service, training, and development for her team while tapping on her knowledge and experience in the debate community. She formerly served as President of Debate Association (Singapore) where she led her team to plan and execute educational programs for critical thinking and oratorical skills for youths in Singapore, working with government bodies, MNCs, and schools to bring these initiatives to life.
