MSM Malaysia Joins ASEAN Sugar Alliance and Aims to Expand Further Export Market

MSM Malaysia Holdings Berhad (MSM), the producer of the leading refined sugar brand “Gula Prai” is now part of the industry initiative ASEAN Sugar Alliance (ASA) via Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) effective on 20 June 2023 together with other sugar industry refiners from Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam or collectively referred as ASA members.  

MSM Group Chief Executive Officer, Syed Feizal Syed Mohammad said “As the country’s first sugar manufacturer and one of the largest standalone sugar refiners in Asia in terms of capacity, we have built a solid foundation amplified by value-added downstream and regional market growth throughout the food-related value chain. Being part of this alliance demonstrates that MSM continues to expand its business model progressively in line with its vision to be a world class and cost-efficient organisation driven by sustainability. It will further support MSM’s vision to grow its export footprint further from the present 6 percent to 12-15 percent market share in the near to medium term in the regional market”.  

“MSM plans to further expand its export market from present 17 countries in Asia Pacific, Bangladesh and Pakistan to extend new outreach to hyper growth continent such as Africa. MSM is also actively looking to expand its presence in the global sugar business via strategic acquisition of assets and interests in other countries as part of its long-term business expansion initiative. Being an ASA industry member will provide better global market information access and intelligence moving forward,” Syed Feizal added.  

Recently, MSM Sugar Refinery (Johor) Sdn Bhd (MSM Johor) has just completed its technical turnaround programme which will boost the production utilisation factor (UF) with full reliability and availability to refine at its effective design production capacity of 1 million tonnes per annum. MSM Johor has geo-strategic advantage to tap into the growing export market of over 4 million tonnes per year in Asia Pacific region. Large volume exports into countries like China, Bangladesh, Philippines and Indonesia will be the initiative MSM Johor will undertake into market including ability to provide break bulk shipping.  

“MSM’s participation in ASA will enable it to establish a closer and stronger relationship with its peers in the sugar industry within ASEAN in which to promote and facilitate sugar trade, production and business cooperation. The members can further collaborate in information exchange and technical cooperation as well as research and development on sugarcane, sugar and related products for the benefit of the over 650 million population in ASEAN,” Syed Feizal further added.  

Established in 2016, the ASEAN Sugar Alliance is a platform for major sugar manufacturers in the region to exchange views and co-operate in areas of mutual interest, fostering the development of the industry, to promote and support the regional sugar industry and it to be more competitive globally.
