As part of the restructuring process undertaken by the Association of Catering Establishments (ACE), Michelle Muscat has been elected as the new president.

Ms Muscat is a leading entrepreneur in the catering industry, and has a varied professional background.

An accountant by profession, Ms Muscat has served as executive officer at the Office of the Prime Minister, personal assistant to the managing director at the Salvo Grima Group and assistant financial controller at the Arrigo Group of Hotels Ltd.

She then returned back to the catering industry, a natural step for someone who was born into a food-loving family, becoming the owner and manager of La Vela restaurant in Pieta.

In 2019, Ms Muscat won the Food and Beverage Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

Matthew Pace is the new Vice President, Omar Vella is the new Honorary Secretary and Jon Dalli is the new Honorary Treasurer. 

The outgoing president of ACE, Reuben Buttigieg will retain a consultative role within the association. 

ACE is a pressure group highlighting the challenges and supporting the rights of Malta’s catering industry. Throughout COVID, it has repeatedly argued in favour of measures that will support the long-term sustainability of the industry, and has since highlighted the difficulties it is facing in terms of HR and staffing.
