The company said that it will cooperate with KKM and take the prescribed measures to curb the spread of Covid-19 on its premises – which it says is in line with the group’s commitment to protect the safety and well-being of employees.
On the impact of the temporary closure on the group’s operations and revenue, Hup Seng said the temporary closure of certain divisions would not affect production other than the delivery of goods to domestic and international customers.
The cost involved that has to be borne by Hup Seng is only in terms of the implementation of the Covid-19 test and disinfection.
Hup Seng has been one of the leading producers of biscuits and snacks in Malaysia since 1958. It was incorporated on 4 October 1991 and subsequently listed on Bursa Malaysia on 2 November 2000.
Hup Seng has three subsidiaries, namely Hup Seng Food Industry (M) Sdn Bhd, Hup Seng Hoon Yong Brothers Sdn Bhd and In-Comix Food Industries Sdn Bhd.
