No Price Increase For Gardenia Products

Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd has recently received several enquiries about the possible price increase of Gardenia bread in Sabah. To clarify, Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd [GBKL] and Gardenia Sabah are two completely different companies, and they are not related. GBKL operates only in Peninsular Malaysia and supplies to this market only. Gardenia Sabah covers that market specifically. The two companies have totally different management, policies, and operational systems.

GBKL would like to assure consumers in Peninsular Malaysia that the price for Gardenia loaves and other products in Peninsula Malaysia remains unchanged.  Prices for Gardenia loaves are listed on ‘kwik lok’ tags and printed on the packaging for other snack items. These prices are fixed.  Should you come across any retailers that have increased the price of any Gardenia product, kindly contact Ms.Lavinia Anthony/ Ms.Mok Siew Lin at 03-5542 3228 immediately, so that the necessary action can be taken.

    • Md Raus,
      99 Speed Mart is probably giving price off to its customers. Gardenia has not changed the prices of its bread for a while now.

    • Waalaikumsalam En. Nasir,
      Gardenia KL tidak menaikan harga produk produknya, contohnya roti putih ‘Original Classic’ kami dijual dengan harga RM2.40 sejak beberapa tahun sudah. Apa yang tersiar di dalam FB link tersebut besar kemungkinan diedit sepertimana yang diagak oleh tuan. Kami tidak pasti kenapa seorang individu boleh menyebarkan fitnah sebegini.

      • betol ke harge rm 2.40 tuh dah beberape thn berkuat kuase..sbb sy rs mcm bru thn ni harge tuh naik….awl thn ni masih rm 2.20…n last month sye beli tgk2 dah rm 2.40..sy adelah penggemar roti gardenia..so takkan tag price pade bungkusan tuh boleh ditukar2 mengikut pasar raya mana yg menjualnye….

        • Azalea,
          Kami tidak pernah menjual roti sandwich ‘Original Classic’ dengan harga RM2.20. Roti tersebut dijual dengan harga RM2.10 mulai 1 Nov. 2007 dan pada 1 Jan. 2010 harganya dinaikkan ke RM2.30.
          Gardenia juga tidak mempunyai roti yang dijual dengan harga RM2.20 sejak tahun 2010 lagi.

  1. Mine bought rm2.40 – expired 9 mei 2013 di Batu Pahat. Sbb ade yg post di fb rm2.10. Mase kemas di dapur tadi terjumpa tag rm2.10 – expired 21 feb 2013.

    • En. Azmi, kami boleh membezakan tag yang digunakan oleh syarikat Gardenia, berlainan sedikit dari tag yang digunakan oleh pihak pesaing. Oleh yang demikian, kami ingin membuat temujanji untuk mengenal pasti tag yang dimaksudkan tuan. Sila beri nombor telifon supaya wakil kami dapat menghubungi tuan. Kerjasama tuan amatlah dihargai.

  2. Assalam…dan salam sejahtera..saya juga ada ternampak link yg menyatakn roti gardenia telah dinaikkn harga dari rm2.10 ke rm2.40..tetapi besar kemungkinan gambar itu telah diedit ( menggunakn tag harga pesaing ) kerana saya adalah penggemar roti ini…mohon pihak tuan tampil memberi penjelasan diatas perbuatan yg tidak bertanggungjawab ini,terima kasih

    • Walaikumsalam Adzmin.
      Roti Original Classic Gardenia memang dijual dengan harga RM2.40.
      Roti berharga RM2.10 ialah Roti Burger Gardenia (kami panggil Roti Sandwic kerana ianya juga
      sesuai dimakan dengan dengan tuna, sardine, dll)
      Berita yang tersiar luas melalui internet mungkin dilakukan oleh pihak yang mempunyai agenda tertentu. Kami harap Saudara Adzmin boleh ‘Share’ penjelasan dari Gardenia supaya rakan rakan lain juga boleh mengetahui cerita sebenar.
      Terima kasih.

  3. Haha. Funny la those people. I bought Gardenia on 5th May 2013 (afternoon specifically) at price of RM2.40.

    • Terima kasih ibnnajib kerana mengesahkan perkara yang sebenar iaitu Gardenia keluaran Sabah dan juga tidak ada kenaikkan harga.

      • Saya orang Labuan, roti Gardenia di Sabah sekarang memang berharga RM4.20 tetapi harga sebelum bulan April 2013 ialah RM3.90.

        • Encik Naccer,
          Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd hanya mempunyai lesen pengeluaran dan pengedaran untuk Semenanjung Malaysia sahaja. Gardenia Sabah dan Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd merupakan 2 entiti yang berbeza dan tiada kena-mengena dari segi operasi, pengurusan harga atau sebagainya.
          Terima kasih.

  4. saya hari2 mkn roti & beli roti….tnggal di skitar klang…beli roti di pasaraya saya dpt harga RM2.30…wlaupun harganya RM2.40….fitnah & penipuan apakah yg pihak2 tertentu ingin lakukn…..please jgn hncurkan Negara dgn fitnah yg gini…saya pun beli jenama gardenia juga….

  5. RESPECT!! I pun dah 2-3 kali check and siap beli lagi roti gardenia..pity the company…menyebarkan tanpa usul periksa. terkejut juga..gambar dr packaging tu lain di semenanjung..Before i done my research, i was thought why the packaging looks differently…and why so expensive???kudos! sila ambil tindakan kepada mereka yg sebarkan fitnah!

    • Terima kasih Norhana.
      Mengambil tidakan atas mereka mereka yang menyebarkan fitnah mengambil sedikit masa. Kami akan dan telah membuat lapuran yang tertentu tetapi tindakan yang akan diambil tidak serta merta. Contohnya tindakan dari FB makan masa yang sangat lama.
      Kami juga menyeru agar para netizen tidak mempercayai semua yang tersiar melalui internet. Besar kemungkinan ada pihak yang akan meraih keuntungan dengan tersiarnya berita palsu sebegini. Marilah kita sama sama memastikan yang kita tidak digunakan oleh pihak tertentu mempunyai agenda tersendiri.

  6. Hobby saya mengumpul price tag gardenia sejak lama dulu…. saya ada bukti sahih tiada kenaikan harga…. Tak kan lah roti pun nak di politikkan?????? :O
    Kasihan Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhari …..

  7. Saya mmg die hard roti gardenia.. pd saya harga tu mmg dh lama begitu.. mmg xada kenaikan.. thanks gardenia.. mmg sungguh enak dimakan begitu saja

  8. Terima kasih gardenia! Saya berpendapat kebenaran ini perlu diperluaskan lagi supaya semua pihak mengetahuinya dan fitnah ini boleh dihentikan dengan serta merta. Saya memang menggemari roti gardenia dari dulu lagi dan ia merupakan pilihan utama saya. Ia memang sedap dimakan begitu saja!!! saya berharap pihak gardenia bertindak pantas agar reputasi gardenia tidak terjejas dan ada pihak lain mendapat faedah daripadanya dengan cara yang tidak baik.

    Terima kasih. Tidak ada butang share di page ini jadi saya cuma akan share link page ini untuk makluman pihak lain juga…

    • Kami harap En. Azmi dapat membantu untuk menyebabkan cerita sebenar kepada rakan rakan yang mungkin juga tertanya tanya.
      Terima kasih.

    • Che Qistina,
      Berhubung perkara diatas, sebenarnya, Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd hanya mempunyai lesen pengeluaran dan pengedaran untuk Semenanjung Malaysia sahaja. Gardenia Sabah dan Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd merupakan 2 entiti yang berbeza dan tiada kena-mengena dari segi operasi, pengurusan, harga atau sebagainya.
      Terima kasih.

  9. Morning…just wan to confirm with ur company regarding the latest issue…price for Gardenia in Sabah increase to RM4.20 from 01/05/2013….Izzit true?? Thankyou

    • Dear Jayaaa,
      In regards to the above, Gardenia Bakeries (KL) only has the license to manufacture and distribute in Peninsular Malaysia.

74 thoughts on “Gardenia bread now comes with No Artificial, Synthetic or Unnatural Preservatives

  1. The reason I stop taking Gardenia bread is because of the artificial preservative. This is a good news for me. Could you post the ingredient of the natural preservative in use now. Thanks.

    • Thanks Jing Wen. The natural preservatives used for our bread is the Raisin Juice Concentrate and Vinegar. Other factors are of course the clean facilities we have which enable us to even control the air quality at the production area.

  2. I also recently stopped taking all “on-the-shelf” bread because of preservatives such as E282. So, there is not any form of propionic acid and propionates used as preservatives (E280-283) in your bread, especially calcium propionate?.
    Thanks.

    • Hi Nic,
      As you have pointed out, calcium propionate is commonly used by wholesale bakeries worldwide for their ‘on-the-shelf’ bread. At Gardenia, we have replaced calcium propionate with natural ingredients such as raisin juice concentrate and vinegar.
      Just to let you know, the shelf-life of Gardenia sandwich bread is 4 days whilst some brands have 5 days shelf-life. Therefore, with the same expiry dates, Gardenia products are fresher then other on-the-shelf bread brands.
      Thank you.

  3. This is admission on your part, that you have been adding either artificial, unnatural or synthetic preservatives until lately. I may want to sue you for the health issues I may have had consuming gardenia bread over the past years.

    • Dear Mr Shelton.
      Calcium propionate is the common preservative used by bakeries worldwide. The allowable usage amount is different from country to country. In Malaysia, the permitted amount is 2,000 parts per million (ppl).

      Gardenia uses ONLY 30% of the permitted amount prior to the launch of our No Artificial Preservatives bread. Now, instead of calcium propionate, we use natural ingredients such as vinegar and raisin juice concentrate. Other wholesale bakeries in Malaysia are still using calcium propionate in they bread.

      The hygienic environment of Gardenia factories contribute to the products shelf-life.

  4. But vinegar is acetic acid, that it is a chemical as well, right?. To produce raisin juice concentrate, no chemicals are used?. I wonder what it is wrong with E-numbers as they are guarantee of what it is in… with naturals..a lot of marketing! For me is a question of education of the population…

    • The vinegar used in Gardenia bread is a natural vineger from sugar fermentation

      Vinegar or acetic acid can be produced both synthetically and by bacterial fermentation. Today, the biological route (natural fermentation) accounts for only about 10 percent of world production but it remains important for vinegar production as many of the world food purity laws stipulate that vinegar used in foods must be of biological origin. About 75 percent of acetic acid made for use in the chemical industry is made by methanol carbonylation, a chemical synthesis.

      The Raisin Juice Concentrate is a water extract of Natural Seedless Raisins. This product is obtained by leaching the natural, water soluble components out of the raisin through a ‘stewing’ process. The solution is then introduced to a vacuum concentrator to obtain an extract. Raisin Juice Concentrate in Gardenia bread is all natural and it is shelf-stable without additives or preservatives.

  5. May I know what are the calcium salts stated in the ingredients? Can you please list out? As far as I know, one of the preservatives used in other breads is calcium propionate which is also a form of calcium salt.

    • Chiu Yin,

      We do not use calcium propionate in our bread.

      The calcium salts use to enrich our bread are the combination of permitted minerals (eg Calcium Phosphate) as specified in table I to the Twelfth Schedule of the Malaysian Food Regulation 1985.

  6. Its great to know the bread now using more natural ingredients. But can i know if all the ingredients used not from animals or any animal extracts? If all vegetarian suitable to eat the bread? Thanks.

    • Hi Charlotte!
      All Gardenia sliced bread are suitable for vegetarians. Apart from milk, we do not use any animal base ingredients. As to the other products (eg Buns, Waffles), please refer to the ingredients list printed on the packaging because some products have eggs as one of the ingredients.

        • Hi Mr. Lai,
          Thank you for your interest in our product.
          For your information, all of our bread loaves range do not contain egg. As for our snack cakes range, product without eggs are Squiggles and Cream Roll.
          Please feel free to contact us at our toll-free line or land-line at 03-5542 3228 for further enquiries.

    • Gardenia uses ONLY 30% of the permitted amount prior to the launch of our No Artificial Preservatives bread. Now, instead of calcium propionate, we use natural ingredients such as vinegar and raisin juice concentrate.

      Other wholesale bakeries in Malaysia are still using calcium propionate in they bread.

  7. Saya dan keluarga amat menyukai roti keluaran Gardenia. Saya berminat untuk membuka kedai di Sibu,Sarawak khusus untuk menjual produk ini kerana roti ini sukar di dapati di Sarawak. Saya harap, pihak Gardenia sedia membuat perbincangan dan memberikan saya peluang ini.

    • Radya,
      Terima kasih atas sokongan tuan/puan dan minat anda untuk menjual produk Gardenia. Gardenia Bakeries (KL) tidak mempunyai hak untuk menjual produk produk kami di Sabah, Sarawak dan Borneo. Hak kawasan kawasan tersebut telah diberikan kepada Gardenia Sabah. Walaubagaimanapun, jika tuan/puan ke Kuala Lumpur dan ingin membeli produk produk Gardenia, kami ada menjualnya di kedai kedai di KLIA dan LCCT. Kami harap tuan/puan memahami situasi tersebut.

  8. Saya dah lama makan roti gardenia. Sejak dari org tak sibuk pasal artificial preservatives lagi. Dah macam-macam jenis yang saya makan. Baik dari roti keping dia sampai roti bun dia. Sihat je sampai skrg. Takde paun penyakit. Tapi yang pasti minum arak dan merokok tu ternyata bawa penyakit. Pelik pula sbb kilang Carlsberg tu boleh tahan lama.

    • Dear Caren,
      We do not understand your query. Please do PM us your contact number and we would get in touch with you. Thank you.

  9. Assalamualaikum,Selamat sejahtera, Selamat dan Berjaya. Saya tiada masalah dalam menikmati apa-apa jenis roti keluaran GARDENIA. Rasanya sedap terkata,lembut senang dikunyah dan ditelan oleh anak-anak dan kita orang dewasa.Roti Putih Classic Jumbonya ,beberapa keping saja cepat mengenyangkan dan puaslah memakannya.Menjimatkan.Tiada apa yang meragukan saya dengan diiktiraf oleh pihak JAKIM.Rokok dan arak dah terang-terang membahayakan dan jelas keharamannya,orang buat tak kesah je.Sapu semacam!!!”Kamu suka sesuatu,belum tentu baik untukmu,kamu tak suka sesuatu,belum tentu buruk bagimu”-nasihat Allah subhanuhuwataala.Terimakasih.

  10. What happen to Breakthrough Gardenia Bread? Discontinued and due to what reason? Any replacement for people with diabettes like me?

    • Hi Yeoh Sa Meng,
      For your information, the company had discontinued production of Gardenia’s Breakthru Bread. We had been receiving overwhelming request from consumers and professional nutritionist for a low GI bread that is at a lower and more affordable price.
      There are 3 products with Low GI, that is:
      - Gardenia 100% WholeGrain with Canadian Purple Wheat (GI value – 46)
      - Gardenia Sommerset Cottage (GI value – 52)
      - Gardenia 100% WholeGrain ( GI value – 55)
      Apart from having low GI value, our 100% WholeGrain with Canadian Purple Wheat has also high anti oxidant.
      We hope the above information is helpful for you.

      Thank you.

    • Hi Jasvindar,
      Thank you for your interest in our product. For your information, Gardenia Squiggles do not contain eggs. It contains milk and component of milk. Please check the product packaging for more info on the list of ingredients and contents.

  11. Does your bread contain any trace of “azodicarbonamide” or “dough conditioner” which has been known to cause allergic reactions in those sensitive to other azo compounds, such as food dyes?
    The consumption of azodicarbonamide may also heighten an allergic reaction to other ingredients in a food. In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive has identified azodicarbonamide as a respiratory sensitizer (a possible cause of asthma) and has determined that these products should be labeled with the words “may cause sensitization by inhalation.”

    • Thank you for taking your time to write to us to clarify the matter. As for your enquiry, we do use dough conditioner, that is largely made up of Emulsifiers which are Soy and Palm base.
      However, all our bread do not contain azodicarbonamide which is most commonly refered to as ADA.

      For any further clarification, please feel free to call our toll-free line at 1-800-88-3228.

      Thank you.

  12. Hi ,

    I believe you are aware that subway has been using a hardening agent that is commonly used to make yoga mat’s and shoes. By any chance are you guys also using the same form of chemical for the bread hardening?

    Please advise.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Kanes.R

    • Hi Kanes,
      As previously mentioned, we do use dough conditioner, that is largely made up of Emulsifiers which are Soy and Palm base.
      Be assured that all our bread do not contain azodicarbonamide which is most commonly referred to as ADA.

Falsehood 4: BERNAS directed Gardenia to stop purchasing flour from Federal Flour Mills Bhd (FFM).

Source: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=265717473475310 (PDF Archive)

Translation: Flour supply contracts signed with the FFM Federal Flour Mills has been canceled by UMNO!

The Truth: Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd [GBKL] has been a friend to FFM since the very beginning. The working relationship between a flour mill and a bakery is like a marriage. All our trade secrets such as ingredients specification and recipes must be intimately shared. With the coming of a new competitor back in 1998, we requested FFM to stay faithful to Gardenia because from our experience, we know our secrets can be leaked out to the new bakery. FFM have made their choice to work with the new bakery and hence, we have to make our choice. We chose to buy flour from the TEH family in Perak, i.e. Malayan Flour Mill Berhad.

BERNAS became one of the major shareholders of GBKL in 2001 because of Industrial Coordination Act 1975. However, they have never interfered with our operation since day one.

So the spins that were created to boycott GBKL are not only wrong, but very dangerous and irresponsible to play with communities’ feeling. We urge Malaysian to come back to their senses and not be exploited by lies.

  1. Hi Vegetarian Recipes. Thanks for the input on the issue of our website in the internet explorer. I will share it with our IT Department.

  2. tiew niDecember 25, 2011u fucker!!!robert kuok has molonopies this sugar and flour business for more than 40 years,is that not cronyism and the malays didn’t even question anything about it.but when a malay only got 30% shares on gardenia u guys want to boycott and play with racism.go and fuck ur own mother!!!!

  3. WanDecember 31, 2011Should have done more homework brefoe calling to boycott a brand. Now you sound stupid. Robert kuok was the buddy of syed mokhtar and the ruling party. Why do you think he can be so rich reaping Malaysians of their money. Damn bodoh right being used by massimo in desparation for sales. Hmmm

  4. For years we have been eating bread supplied form Gardenia , now it seems that the bread businnes has been politized by a competitor to gain market share and tarnishing the good Gardenia image . Cheap publicity by so called Messimo.

  5. It’s essentially a great and helpful piece of information. I am happy that you simply shared this useful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.

Falsehood 3: The halal status of Gardenia products in Sabah is questionable.

The Truth: Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd [GBKL] and Gardenia Sabah are two different companies and they are not related. These two companies have totally different policies, management and operational systems.

All products manufactured by GBKL are certified halal by JAKIM. It’s internal halal committee, formed in 1994, continuously monitors and scrutinizes every aspect of halal issues. The committee is given full authority pertaining to halal and syariah matters.

6 thoughts on “Falsehood 2: Gardenia is a crony company.

  1. From a consumer’s point of view: Gardenia is 30% owned by Bernas – a GLC with a monopoly on rice distribution in Malaysia – which in turn is over 70% owned by Tan Sri SMA, an entrepreneur popularly regarded as a crony.

    Thus, by giving Gardenia business, a consumer is indirectly supporting & benefiting a monopoly business and a crony.

    Gardenia needs concrete actions to disassociate itself from such companies & individuals, otherwise it’s just a wasted effort to spend on marketing campaigns to try clearing its own name, while nothing is done to break the association or end the shareholdings.

    • Dear Uncrony,

      In accordance to the Industrial Coordination Act 1975, companies applying for manufacturiing license are required to have Bumiputra participations. This act is applicable to ALL companies and industries including bakeries, flour millers, oil manufacturers and etc. Some companies use proxies and are not easily traced. Gardenia has Bernas as its partner since 2001.

      Gardenia’s top management team has not changed since 1987. All business and operational decisions, including the list of suppliers, are made by the management base on commercial considerations.

  1. I will never believe this kind of rumors. Don’t give up, and please continue your high spirit to fight with the useless and uncompetence competitors. How can theydo this without using their brain?

    • Dear Canon,

      Thank you for your encouragement. We are really glad that not all out there are consumed and easily swayed by false accusations.

      What suprised us the most was, that in today’s world where information are just at your fingertips, a large portion just chose to be puppeted & not verify the facts.

      It is sad to see how we have grown. But, knowing that people like you are out there, makes our day slightly brighter.

      Once again, thank you. We really appreciate your support.

  3. Hello Admin,

    Thank you for the effort the company is making. This is great keep this up!

    Just want to give my POV about why people still believe on the lies spread around especially about the health issues of Gardenia. It may be because people have more tendencies to trust what their friends, families and their community said than a company/brand. Most of the lies are spread throughout Facebook, email, talk of mouth which is forwarded and shared through network of friends and families in the intention to warn their beloved without checking the facts first. It is much easier to click the forward button from going online to check the facts. If Gardenia can convey the image of a friendly nutritionist expert to masses I think it can become first source of Facts customer can check first. Just my thoughts

Because I am afraid if the sliced bread as mentioned earlier is vegetarian but might contain traces of animal products (eg, egg) if it all comes from the same machine as those products with egg ingredient.

    • Hi Tatchana,
      Pertaining to your enquiries, we are pleased to inform that ALL our sliced bread do not use eggs in them. Therefore, there is no worries of traces in that sense.
      Nevertheless, we would also like to take this opportunity to share with you that all products (buns, waffles & cakes) that uses eggs in their recipes are segregated to their own designated production line.
