Manufacture, Retail and Distribution of Traditional Penang Local Products

C.K.C. History and Principal Activities


CHEONG KIM CHUAN (C.K.C.) has its humble beginnings in Penang since 1937, operating from a single retail shop on the steps to Kek Lok Si Temple in Ayer Itam, Penang.

Over the years, it has established its brand and has become a household name in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. C.K.C. is known especially for the manufacture and sales of premium quality nutmeg mace oils, nutmeg medicated oils and nutmeg balm, preserved nutmeg fruits, nutmeg syrup, belacan and a host of other traditional Malaysian Food Products.

The golden bell logo is an established trademark which is recognized as synonymous with CHEONG KIM CHUAN’S commitment to quality and customers’ satisfaction.

The company has since expanded to include 6 retail outlets, a distribution and trading office in Kuala Lumpur, and a Halal certified, GMP and HACCP accredited factory in Bayan Lepas, Penang.
