IPOH: A Perak company will send lorry loads of Indian snacks to Jakarta and Medan in Indonesia from next month.
The first batch is worth about RM28,000.
DNS Kacang Puteh owner T. Sanggkaraa Linggam said in the past, some families from Kampung Kacang Putih in Buntong here had exported the Indian snacks to Singapore and Australia.
“However, that stopped. We know there is demand for the snacks and hope to export them again,” he said at the launch of his factory in Menglembu, here, yesterday.
Sanggkaraa’s factory makes 1,000kg of fried peanuts, salted tapioca chips and muruku daily. The RM1.2 million investment is the second such factory in the city.
He said he also planned to export his products to Thailand, Singapore and China.
He named his factory DNS after the initials of his three sons: Deva Kumar, 17, Nirumal Kumar, 19, and Sathis Kumar, 21.
Sathis, who recently completed a Diploma in Accounting, is working at his father’s company as a managing director. He said the company catered for shops in Alor Star, Penang, Johor Baru, Kuala Lumpur and Kota Baru.
Datuk Bandar Datuk Roshidi Hashim, who opened the factory, said the city was known as the home of the largest cluster of kacang putih manufacturers in the country.
“This factory will pique the interest of local and foreign tourists.”
