Biscuit lovers might exeperience a shortage of Hup Seng biscuits because a factory in Batu Pahat, Johor, has been ordered to temporarily suspend its operations by the Health Ministry (KKM) on Sunday, according to The Star.

This comes almost two weeks after it was first shut down temporarily on 5th to 11th September for disinfection purposes after a reported Covid-19 outbreak in the plant.

The biscuit maker notes that because the factory will not be able to operate, there will be delays in the delivery of their goods to both local and export customers. For us, that means we will need to expect a shortage of Hup Seng biscuits for a while until their operations resume.

The plant will be shut down for around 10 days.

Hup Seng also noted that this temporary suspension would lead to a loss in production volume, which is estimated to be approximately 3% of the total annual production volume.

The manufacturer is cooperating and working closely with the Health Ministry during this time to ensure that the spread of Covid-19 can be contained to keep their employees safe.

Operations of the manufacturing plant is expected to resume after 30 September 2021.
