By Pasha Khondokar

Back in 1960, these entrepreneurs, with their 12,000 restaurants, established the powerful organisation called Bangladesh Caterers Association (BCA). Besides upholding the different interests of the people related to this industry, BCA played active role for Bangladesh in times of disaster like flood and cyclone like SIDR and assisted in various ways to make the Vision Bangladesh, a project of BRAC, effective. Recently, BCA held its Annual Award Ceremony and Gala Dinner at a five star hotel in Central London with presence of powerful ministers and MPs from the opposition.
