Taste New Zealand food fair introduces premium options to Malaysians

Kuala Lumpur, 21 April 2016 

Catering to the discerning taste of Malaysians AEON has partnered for the fourth consecutive year with New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. Themed “Innovate with New Zealand from Land to the Sea”, dairy, meat, fruit and seafood will be amongst the premium items on sale. AEON Executive Director, MrPoh Ying Loo, said, “The recent ‘Answer & Win’ contest received an encouraging number of submissions. We are constantly seeking ways to engage our loyal customers in funcontests and activities-it is also our way of saying thank you.”

“Health conscious Malaysians are mindful of the product quality, taste and safety standards which are synonymous to New Zealand products,” said Mr. Matt Ritchie, New Zealand’s Trade Commissioner to Malaysia and Brunei.

“New Zealand’s climate, fertile soil and relative isolation make it ideal for almost every kind of production – from sheep and cattle to cropping and horticulture,” he added.

Ms. Nur Qamarina Chew, Managing Director of AEON CO. (M) BHD said, “The fair introduces products such as Whittaker’s Artisan range, a world class chocolate; Organic muesli and Hake fillet which will add more diversity to the range of New Zealand products already available at AEON outlets. This will bring Malaysians to new level of a healthy living with more quality product options to choose from.”

During the launch of Taste New Zealand Food Fair, Chef Faizah Zainal Abidin, a lifestyle consultant shared her cooking expertise in making simple and easy cooking recipes to whip up delicious and healthy meals.

The food fair will be held in selected AEON outlets from 21st April 2016 to 4 May 2016. Shoppers can redeem RM 10 AEON voucher when they spend RM 150 worth of New Zealand products in a single receipt, stand a chance to win New Zealand food bags worth RM200 and a chance to win a pair of AirAsia X return tickets from Kuala Lumpur to Auckland.
