Penang known as food heaven, so the only things that came out from my mind is to bring back food that can last long as souvenir. So, my friend from Penang told me to drop by at this main outlet and also the largest one.
Originated from Fujian, China since 1856, Ghee Hiang has become an integral part of Penang, Malaysia’s colourful heritage and mesmerising traditions. In 1856, during a period when the tin mining and rubber industries in Malaysia was flourishing and attracted many Chinese immigrants from Southern China, the founder invited a Fujian Pastry Chef to Penang and adopted the name Ghee Hiang. This marked the beginning of Ghee Hiang traditional pastries in Penang.
Then in 1900’s, Ghee Hiang Baby Brand Pure Sesame Oil was introduced, using methods and techniques learned from Fujian, China. Through the years of further refinement and quality seeds selection, Ghee Hiang Baby Brand Sesame Oil had gained much appreciation, demand and popularity. It had become a trusted brand name for uses ranging from households, food industries, restaurants to healthcare.
