We started mooncake business in 1982, at that time all our moon cakes were hand made and were sold as part of our Chinese restaurant business. In 1995, we moved our moon cake operation to our manufacturing facility in Sungai Buloh with a built-up area of approximately 20,000 square feet. Subsequently in 2002, we moved our manufacturing facilities to Shah Alam, Selangor with a total built-up area of 62,535 square feet. In 1986, our output of moon cakes averaged 20,000 pieces per year and has since grown to 1.1 million pieces per year by 2008.
In 1997, we incorporated Haewaytian Food Industries Sdn Bhd to focus on marketing our in-house manufactured moon cakes and other baked products such as egg rolls and cookies.
In 2000, our moon cakes were exported to Australia via our distributor. We have since expanded our export markets to cover the Netherlands, Indonesia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the US and the PRC.
