ps - Here's some info from their informative website too ...
"Ghee Hiang...since 1856...its been a tradition."
A Malaysian brandname built over a period nearing 150 years through careful nurturing, sound customer commitment and experience. We pride ourselves in handing down our century old (Fujian, China) recipes and trademarks in freshly baked biscuits, pastries and the art of sesame seed oil production.
Amongst our many other biscuits and pastries, we originated Penang's first "Tau Sar Pneah"(Green Bean Paste Pastry) which till today, we are still famous and unique in its taste, although frequently copied but not matched by our competitors.
Likewise our sesame seed oil have enjoyed rich traditions and successes true to the fact its a leading brandname in the culinary world, chefs and restaurateurs can attest to it. Handed down in chinese folklore and tradition, mothers in confinement relish and trust our 100% pure sesame seed oil to bring the needed "warmth" and "chi" energy back to mothers whilst in child labour.
