Our Story

70 years of heritage

What’s in a name?

Pagoda, is the brainchild of Liew Kee Yin, the founder of Thong Thye Groundnut Factory Sdn Bhd, now aptly known as Pagoda Foods (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

The late Mr. Liew envisioned his enterprise to possess strength and tenacity which enable it to withstand the test of time―just like the pagoda in his birthplace Hopoh in Guangdong, China. Built in the 19th century, the Hopoh pagoda has braved various natural calamities like flood, drought and famine. It is a local landmark marveled by visitors even to this day.

What’s in a nut?

Whenever you crack open the shell of a Pagoda groundnut and pop the nuts into your mouth, you’re savouring some seventy years of expertise in making the perfect Menglembu groundnuts―tasty, crunchy and aromatic.

Pagoda groundnuts are good-tasting, guilt-free snack as they are free from preservatives, artificial colourings and flavourings. They also do not contain cholesterol and trans fat.

So, what’s in a nut? A crackin’ good time with lots of fun and enjoyment!

What’s so special about
Menglembu Groundnuts?

Menglembu was originally a tin mining town located near Ipoh, Perak in Peninsular Malaysia. The town became synonymous with groundnuts when a local resident, Mr. Lee, developed a unique method to process groundnuts together with the shells.

The method is now perfected by Pagoda through its extensive experience and passion spanning three generations. The freshly harvested groundnuts are washed, boiled in salt, dried, and then slowly baked to perfection without using oil but heat. This painstaking method gives the groundnuts an aroma, taste and crunch unlike any other.
