Discounts, recipes, freebies and fun await!

There are some foods that though simple, carry a special nostalgic value. Remember the sardine sandwiches that Amma used to make for school lunch? Or the sardine sambal you’d have with rice and rasam for dinner with the family?

Much like these foods that evoke memories of home, one popular canned sardine brand has grown to hold a permanent place in many Malaysians’ childhood and kitchens… Ayam Brand.

Believe it or not, the brand has been around since 1892, which makes it 130 years old! Today, Ayam Brand’s offerings have expanded to also include canned tuna, baked beans, santan, curry paste, and more. It also prides itself in being preservative-free, having no added MSG, and is non-GMO (this means the ingredients aren’t genetically modified).

For its 130th birthday, Ayam Brand is throwing a Taste of Home celebration and you’re invited!
