Abstract

This research explores the understanding of national food heritage based on age ranges (30-35 and > 36 years old). 676 respondents in Klang Valley areas with the appropriate age group and knowledgeable about food heritage are surveyed on a self-completed questionnaire. The correlation of national food heritage differences in terms of preservation, image, identity and sustainabledeterminants (p<0.05) were identified. The key criterion for 'traditional meaning' was selected often with major variations (p<0.05). The diverse interpretation of the age group shows the vision and perception that can be used as a guide to successful approaches to national food heritage.

Keywords:Awareness; Food heritage; Age; Klang Valley.
