BSBCC was invited to join in the Sandakan Food Festival 2017 from the 30th August to 2nd September 2017. This year the organiser has chosen Bornean Sun Bear to be the icon of this festival. Sabah's Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Musa bin Haji Aman officiated this festival on the 1st September 2017. An app known as TheSandakan was launched that night and is now available for download at Google Play store. Through this app, users can search for landmarks, accomodations and restaurants within Sandakan area. Sandakan is famous because of its seafood and is also known as the City of Nature. This event helps in promoting Sandakan City as well as increasing awareness about Mother Nature, especially our sun bears, the least known bear species. During this 4 days event, many food stalls were open as well as exhibitions from participating organisations and companies.
