Gardenia will be raising the prices of most of their food items beginning 1 September 2022, though a few will remain the same.

For example, the retail price for Gardenia Original Classic will be RM3.00, a 20sen increase from RM2.80. The Jumbo size will go for RM4.30, a 30 sen increase from RM4.00.

The retail price for Gardenia Whole Wheat Bread will be RM4.00, a 40sen increase from RM3.60.

Some of the other food items affected will be Twiggies, Squiggles, QuickBites, Fluffy Buns, Puazz!, Toast’em, their flavoured bread spreads, and NuMee noodles.

Rising operating costs

In response to customer inquiries, Gardenia said that this price increase is due to a sudden rise in costs of raw materials and logistics.

They say that these rises have been significant enough that the company is unable to absorb the difference, hence they have no choice but to pass on the increasing costs to retailers and consumers.

However, this price hike comes less than a year after their last price hike in December 2021.
