Adding Some Sweetness
Into Your Daily Lives
We are the leading refined sugar producer in Malaysia, involved primarily in the production, marketing and sales of refined sugar products, with an annual production capacity of over 1.1 million metric tons. In 2011, we produced a total of approximately 958,377 metric tons of refined sugar products, accounting for approximately 56.9% of total sugar production in Malaysia. We conduct our sugar business primarily through MSM Malaysia Holdings Berhad (MSM Holdings) and its two operating subsidiaries, MSM and Kilang Gula Felda Perlis Sdn Bhd (KGFP). MSM Holdings was listed on the main market of Bursa Securities in June 2011.
In addition, we own a 20% equity interest in Tradewinds, a company listed on the main market of Bursa Malaysia that controls the operators of the two other sugar refineries in Malaysia, namely Central Sugar Refinery Sdn Bhd and Gula Padang Terap Sdn Bhd.
Our sugar products range from white refined sugar of various grain sizes to soft brown sugar and are marketed and sold in a variety of packaging options under the "Gula Prai" and "Gula Perlis" brands. We also sell molasses, a by-product of the refining process, to distilleries and producers of ethanol, animal feed and yeast, among other products.
Sugar Production Facilities
We own and operate two sugar refineries, as well as a sugar cane milling facility in Malaysia. KGFP operates a sugar refinery in Chuping, Perlis and MSM operates a sugar refinery located in Seberang Prai, Penang. Each refining facility has packaging, storage and distribution capabilities on-site. MSM also operates a packaging and distribution warehouse in Sungai Buloh, Selangor and another distribution warehouse in Johor Bahru, Johor. Both of these facilities are connected to the refinery in Prai by rail.
