Following the recent general elections, certain irresponsible parties / netizens have taken to spreading more lies about Gardenia on Facebook and Internet. This time, they are saying that the price of Gardenia bread in Peninsular Malaysia has increased. They even have a photo of the ‘kwik lok’ tag showing the prices (refer above). THIS IS A BLATANT LIE. The ‘kwik lok’ is from a different Gardenia product, sliced Sandwich Bun (Burger bun).
This Facebook message is being spread by unscrupulous parties who may have a benefactor that is not able to compete honestly in an open market.
There has been no increase in the retail price of Gardenia bread in Peninsular Malaysia.
We would very much appreciate if you could share the truth with your family and friends.
Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd has recently received several enquiries about the possible price increase of Gardenia bread in Sabah. To clarify, Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd [GBKL] and Gardenia Sabah are two completely different companies, and they are not related. GBKL operates only in Peninsular Malaysia and supplies to this market only. Gardenia Sabah covers that market specifically. The two companies have totally different management, policies, and operational systems.
GBKL would like to assure consumers in Peninsular Malaysia that the price for Gardenia loaves and other products in Peninsula Malaysia remains unchanged. Prices for Gardenia loaves are listed on ‘kwik lok’ tags and printed on the packaging for other snack items. These prices are fixed. Should you come across any retailers that have increased the price of any Gardenia product, kindly contact Ms.Lavinia Anthony/ Ms.Mok Siew Lin at 03-5542 3228 immediately, so that the necessary action can be taken.
