At the end of 2018, Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta also supported the work program of the Yogyakarta City Regional Development Planning Agency (Bappeda), especially in the field of Economics. The Yogyakarta City Bapeda has more than 200 fostered MSMEs. The MSMEs consist of various types of businesses and one of them is a food business, especially market snacks.
At the moment of Curating the MSME Meal or the MSME food quality assessment, Eastparc Hotel Yogyakarta delegated Gatot Santoso as Executive Chef to be one of the curators or judges who gave assessments and evaluations of food quality. Through this process, it is hoped that SMEs in this type of food business will gain knowledge on how to maintain quality, cleanliness, reduce production costs, and other things that must be considered to improve the quality of their products.
