LOONG NAM has long been established itself as the first and oldest handmade biscuit shop located in the lovely island known famously as the Pearl of the Orient – Penang Island, Malaysia. Founded in 1928 by the two family members who were passionate bakers and succeeded by the second and then third generations of this passionate family members, we are always faithful to our origins with passion.
Throughout our long historical journey, our sweet adventure continued through many ups and downs. Therefore, every single recipe produced by the forefathers of LOONG NAM tells a historical story filled with emotional events that makes our biscuits uniquely delicious and tasty.
Realising the need to move together with the modern times with more creation of latest pastries after our long historical journey, the new family members of LOONG NAM have undertaken the construction of a modern biscuit manufacturing factory in Penang Science Park in 2020 and in early 2021, this new factory obtained all relevant international quality accreditations namely GMP, ISO22000, HACCP, HALAL and MeSTI.
Through various internal R&D efforts after the completion of this modern factory, this fourth young generation of management team has created more healthy, tasty and trendy products such as granola, gluten free rice crackers, energy bars and chocolate products in addition to the traditional tasty biscuits.
In line with our efforts in modernising our product range while at the same time maintaining our traditional value, LOONG NAM has recently embarked on a rebranding exercise to rebrand our old logo and old shop into a more modern look. Our new brand name, HA’RITAGE is born for this purpose.
We believe that real food has the power to bring people together and create some of life’s most cherished moments where sharing real food with family and friends is a treasured part of healthy life. That’s why we put our energy into sourcing the best ingredients, finding the most authentic recipes and creating products that can enrich every moment to make life even better and longer.
The LOONG NAM history, the preparation of our products, the honesty, and the true flavours, inspire and encourage the health-conscious lifestyles of the coming generations. At LOONG NAM, we believe in the craft, the purity, the honesty, and the variety of our products.
