In 1967, HSL was founded by the late Mr. Koh Thi San as a trading company which supplies marine and agricultural products to traditional food markets
and businesses. What was once a home business trading food ingredients with small-time hawkers and vendors has now turned into a full-fledged ingredients
manufacturing and exporting business with dealings from all over Asia Pacific.
Fast forward to year 1997, where we have established our own contract farming arrangement with China. This contract has since allowed us to scale up our
food production and enable us to optimize productivity, quality, and safe practices at source, especially in terms of pesticides
residuals control. This way, we have total control over how we source, farm, harvest, and
process our ingredients to ensure that only high-quality products reach our end customers.
We know for a fact that the quality of our ingredients directly affects the outcome of the flavour and tastes of our paste - hence why we do not compromise
on the freshness and grade of raw
ingredients that we source. Earlier in 2017, another contract was established with Sichuan
Academy of Agriculture Sciences and in year 2018, we acquired a 500,000 square meters chilli plantation at Chengdu to obtain different varieties of fresh
chillies. To demonstrate our passion and promise in delivering top-class ingredients - we’re actively engaged in a research into the
species of fresh chilies (hotness, color, size, ease of harvesting, increase of productivity through labor saving etc) with the Sichuan Academy.
Meanwhile, back in our home country in Malaysia - our newly acquired 128,000 sqft factory outlet continues to process (peel, cut, cook, dry, etc.) raw ingredients
and flavoured cooking oils for hundred of restaurants and hotels in our client base.
With this, our customers can rest assured that Mama’s Delights practices total transparency in the sourcing of food ingredients.
