New Food Services
Global Experience - Local Revolution
Kalataka, a Maltese food service and ancillary hospitality
management company, is the culmination of more than 20
years of successful entrepreneurial businesses. It was
founded and is managed by a team of seasoned executives
Our vision is to revolutionize the food offerings for today’s
fast-paced and sophisticated lifestyles. Running high-profile
operations across three continents, and observing the evolution of global food consumption habits and trends, led to the
belief that another solution - more efficient, attractive and
healthy - was needed.
REVOLUTION THROUGH A NEW CONCEPT
Despite the ever-ncreasing pace in life, people still expect
quality, choice and affordability in their food selection, without sacrificing their health or their environment. Individually
these expectations have been met one way or another.

Business and Tourism
The Maltese Islands - Malta, Gozo and Comino - lie midway
between Europe and North Africa. Malta is the smallest EU
member state by population and by size. It has a history
and culture that stretches 7000 years back in time.
Apart from the 415,000 inhabitants, more than 1.4 million
visitors arrive in the country every year. The Maltese
Islands are economically, socially and culturally well
developed. Besides the rich cultural heritage, Malta offers
a solid business and industrial background.
Tourism is a cornerstone of Malta’s economy, contributing some 25% of the GDP, and directly employs 30% of
the population. It has been recognized as a key industry
in Malta, helping to diversify the economy through
increased employment, investment and foreign currency
earnings. The government has provided a number of
incentives for investors in tourism.
The country’s economy, the smallest in the EU, emerged
from the financial crisis relatively unscathed. Other leading sectors include financial services (with a 30% growth
per annum), high end manufacturing, pharmaceuticals,
ICT and professional services.
The official languages in Malta are Maltese and English.
90% of the population live in urban settings and is totally
bilingual. Also, most Maltese have a good command of
Italian, while French and German are widely spoken as
well. The local labour force is known to be well educated,
highly skilled, productive and dependable.
Two-thirds of all visitors originate from 5 countries: UK,
Italy, Germany, France and Spain. Younger consumers (up
to 24 years old) represent the fastest growing segment
in terms of visitors.
ST JULIAN’S - FIRST LOCATION
St Julian's was initially a small fishing village and today spreads along the picturesque coast of Balluta, Spinola
and St George's Bays. It holds the largest concentration of restaurants and 4 & 5* hotels on the island. St
Julian’s resort is one of Malta's main coastal resort towns and a heartland for shopping, entertainment and café
life. There are key commercial and residential areas with some of Malta's newest hotels and apartments. St
Julian's is one of Malta's main nightlife areas. The coastline of St Julian's is also home to a deluxe leisure,
residential and marina complex.
Valletta, the capital city of Malta, is a mixture of culture and commerce. A harbour city, Valletta preserves
much of its 16th century architectural heritage built under the Hospitallers. Valletta was one of the earliest
sites inscribed by UNESCO on the World Heritage list. The main street of Valletta is Republic street, a busy
pedestrian zone leading down the middle of the Peninsula from the main gate to Republic square. This is
where many of the better shops are located. Unusual for a capital city, Valletta's nightlife is limited to a few
bars, and the streets, so full of shoppers and office workers during the day, become deserted after dark.
Sliema is known for its shopping, restaurants and café life. It is a major commercial and residential area and
houses several of Malta's most modern hotels. Most hotels (even budget ones) are just a two minute walk from
the sea, the main shops and the bars in Sliema. The town has a commercial bustle due to the affluence of its
inhabitants, to a concentration of tourist traffic and to people coming from out of town for shopping and
entertainment. In summer, Sliema witnesses an influx of foreign students studying English at the numerous
language schools in the area.
Paceville is very much a resort area, consisting mainly of holiday accommodations and has the largest
concentration of restaurants, bars and clubs in Malta. It is one of Malta's main nightlife areas. Facilities in the
area include state of the art clubs, casino, cinemas, live music bars and ethnic restaurants. Most places stay
open quite late and fast food outlets provide fuel to those on a bar/club crawl.
ST. PAUL’S BAY AREA
St. Paul’s Bay is located on the North East coast of Malta and it consists of Bugibba, Qawra and St Paul’s Bay.
Together with Mellieha, these are the largest tourist areas of Malta. Bugibba is the largest resort town in the
area, with good views of St. Paul’s Bay and its islands. It is a hive of activity after dark, with a multitude of
bars, clubs and restaurants. The main centre is Bugibba Square and the streets surrounding it.
This sister island is smaller, more remote and less built-up than Malta itself. It is a popular destination in its
own right. It has a pretty countryside, and interesting churches alongside historic fortifications and
megalithic temples. Gozo makes a good trip from Malta and an even better destination for a relaxed short
break. The largest town is the capital Victoria, home of Gozo's most important historical sight - the Citadel
castle. Republic Street in Victoria and the harbour are the main shopping areas, with restaurants, cafés and
major brand shopping.
Mdina is the old capital of Malta, located in the western central part of the island. This ancient town was built
on top of a high plateau with amazing views of the surrounding fields, villages and even the Mediterranean
Sea. While visiting the palaces, private homes, churches and squares in the streets and alleys, one can also
find high quality restaurants.
