Brunei-Malaysia firm to bring in healthy snack food brand

A BRUNEI-MALAYSIAN joint venture was established early this year to bring in healthy snack food that can help combat the obesity problem in the sultanate.

DASTO Global Ventures Sdn Bhd — a joint venture among local company Otion Enterprise, Dr Aishah Solution Sdn Bhd (DAS) (M) and Kita Teguh Global Resources (M) — are bringing in DASTO granola cereal, a health food brand developed by Malaysian entrepreneur and medical doctor Dr Aishah Tul Radziah Lebai Hussin.

DAS currently manufactures and sells a line of healthy food products in Malaysia such as green tea powder, energy bars and cereal. Safwan Hj Metassan, marketing director for DASTO Global Ventures, said the company will initially bring in granola cereal to Brunei. They will market the product through vatious seminars and expos.

Once DASTO Global Ventures establish itself in Brunei, Safwan said it will start looking to expand into Indonesia.

DAS was established in 2010 to promote a weight management programme. Two years later, the Kedah-based company will branch out to food manufacturing via the DASTO (Dr Aishah Solution Tackles Obesity) brand.

In 2015, DASTO’s matcha-flavoured energy bar won the Best New Halal Food Award in the Gulfood Award Exhibition held in Dubai.
