Selangor, 25 September 2023 – Tea friends rejoice! Premium tea beverage brand CHAGEE Malaysia celebrates its new milestone today, announcing that it has received Halal certification from the Department of Islamic Development in Malaysia (JAKIM) for its five outlets, with 30 others in the pipeline to be Halal certified by year end. CHAGEE Malaysia aims to open its 300th outlet by 2025, while continuing its efforts in phases to ensure that all its outlets will be Halal-certified.
According to Ng Jia Jun, Deputy General Manager of CHAGEE Malaysia, “With the Halal certification, tea friends can continue to indulge in their favourite CHAGEE brews with a refreshed trust and confidence, especially amongst our Muslim community which represents the largest population in Malaysia. Whether you are sipping our classic fresh milk tea blends or exploring our innovative fruit tea creations, you can be assured that every cup of CHAGEE tea meets the highest standards of Halal integrity as well as food safety and operational standards.”
During the media event, Mohd Shahril Bin Abd Samat, Senior Assistant Director from the Department of Islamic Development in Malaysia (JAKIM) presented the Halal certificate to CHAGEE Malaysia, signifying CHAGEE’s commitment to adhering to Halal standards and ensuring that its exquisite range of tea meets the dietary requirements of its Muslim customers.
With the boost of confidence through the Halal certification from JAKIM, coupled with the bright market prospects and a growing tea-drinking trend, CHAGEE has set its sights to increase its current 70 outlets to a total of 300 outlets across Malaysia by the end of 2025, as part of its long-term vision to strengthen, curate and grow the tea-drinking culture in the country. To date, CHAGEE has sold more than 10,000,000 cups in Malaysia and is confident to continue this uptrend through its expansion plan to reach out to a wider base of customers.
During the “Conversations with CHAGEE” session, Ng engaged in a “tea talk” with two tea friends and longtime CHAGEE lovers, Sara Muzam and Shu Faye, where they exchanged thoughts on tea trends, fun facts, intricacies and personal tea-drinking traits and experiences with CHAGEE Malaysia.
Sara Muzam enthused, “The tea drinking culture in Malaysia is definitely expanding as many are increasingly aware of the health benefits of tea and that it can be enjoyed with different ingredients and flavours to conjure various moods and experiences. I truly enjoy my cup of CHAGEE tea beverage – it’s a convenient pick-me-up as my daily perk and its lovable tea taste is truly refreshing! My favourite is the White Peach Oolong Milk Tea. Try it!”
