C K Tan, Group CEO, Munchy Food Industries

Nature of business: Biscuit and wafer manufacturingRevenue (2009): RM300 mil (approx)Major export markets: Japan, Singapore, IndonesiaFactories: One (Batu Pahat, Johor)Export markets: 60Your family is affiliated with Hwa Tai Industries – a competitor. Where does Munchy Food Industries fit in?My father founded Hwa Tai but he did an IPO (initial public offering) in 1992 and sold the entire company in 1996. Subsequently it changed hands a few times and now, it’s under the Soo family. Today, we are friendly competitors! My two older brothers started Munchy’s in 1991. I came back from the US in 1994 to join them in the business as export manager because I knew English and had a computer background. At that time, the Internet was just starting to boom. My father had asked me to come back because he figured that if I had worked longer in the US, I might not come back anymore [to Malaysia] so… [laughs] Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, was it easier to start Munchy’s then? I don’t think so. We grew this business from scratch so we had to relearn everything. I would say it took more of common sense and best practices to build the company. As we continued to grow the business, we acquired knowledge to implement in the company.
