It started with the tin mining and rubber industries boom in the then Malaya back in 1856 when there was also an influx of Chinese immigrants from Southern China. It was during this period too that Ghee Hiang, which saw its origins from Fujian, China, was established with the arrival of a Fujian pastry chef to Penang’s shores. The chef, invited by Ghee Hiang’s founder, introduced Ghee Hiang traditional pastries in Penang and by the 1900s, the Ghee Hiang Baby Brand Pure Sesame Oil was introduced.
Both these product lines were carefully crafted with age-old proven traditional methods and techniques from Fujian, China, thus producing an end result of superb quality and incomparable flavours. Even as Ghee Hiang becomes an integral part of Penang and a reminder of Malaysia’s colourful heritage and rich traditions, it continues to improve its products and techniques.
The Ghee Hiang Baby Brand Sesame Oil, made from continuous refinement and quality seeds selection, has today become a trusted brand not only for households but also for commercial uses from food industries, restaurants to hotels
