MAGGI’s Sah Malaysia campaign appreciates the ‘air tangan’ of Malaysians who craft and savour the Malaysian taste

Shah Alam, October 16, 2023 – For more than five decades, MAGGI has held a special place in the lives of Malaysians. Since 1969, iconic favourites such as the Chilli Sauce and MAGGI 2-Minute Noodles have seamlessly woven themselves into countless homes, becoming an integral part of significant good-food moments. The deep affection for MAGGI has led the brand to be present in 9 out of 10 households. This is a testament to how MAGGI has become the favourite brand to express love and that special touch through cooking - ‘Air tangan’, that personal touch infused in every meal.

In a celebratory event on 6 October, MAGGI brought to life the very essence of ‘cita rasa’ Malaysia through the ‘air tangan’ of Malaysians. Four passionate foodies proudly showcased their ‘air tangan’ through delicious creations using a wide variety of MAGGI products. Among the highlights are, the classic duo, Ayam Masak Merah with Nasi Tomato creatively prepared with a healthy twist; as well as the transformation of a humble packet of MAGGI Asam Laksa Noodles into an authentic Sabahan dish by incorporating a local ingredient, jeruk tuhau.

This is how we are able to consistently deliver products that meet the high expectations of Malaysians with trust and love,” said Mr Juan Aranols, CEO of Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad.

In the spirit of celebration, MAGGI recognised a number of highly dedicated colleagues who have worked tirelessly behind the brand.
