PASIR MAS: A famous dodol manufacturer here known as `Kak Yah Dodol’ has continued to receive many orders this year, including from customers as far away as Sabah and Sarawak.
Sazwira Sulaiman said his factory located along the Jalan Pasir Mas-Rantau Panjang Highway has produced more than 10,000 packages of dodol.
“Like in previous years, there is high demand for my dodol as it tastes different from the dodol made by others.
“The 20 workers in the factory have to work around-the-clock to meet the demand. Due to the high volume of orders, I have had to stop taking them,” said the 44-year-old when met at his house-cum-factory here today.
Sazwira, who is a fourth generation dodol maker, said he has sold dodol of various flavours since 20 years ago and they are called `dodol gula melaka’, `dodol pasir’, `dodol durian’, `dodol telur’ and `gelembung buaya’ (candy dodol) under the brand “Wan Sabarua”.
The father of five said all the dodol are sold between RM5 and RM7 per packet.
“There were many orders for dodol pasir, which is the original dodol, compared to others and it is selling like hot cakes during this fasting month,” said Sazwira.
Apart from selling dodol, he said his factory also produced chicken, fish and beef serunding (floss).
“Those who are regular customers will normally stop by at my factory when they are heading to Rantau Panjang as it is open seven days a week from 7am to 3pm.
“Some of them will be upset if they can’t get the the dodol they like because they are sold out but I will persuade them to take other flavours,” said Sazwira.
