Message from the Group Executive Chairman's
Dato' Ding Chong Chow

As science, technology and human intelligence become more and more advanced, more and more rules and regulations on consumer safety will be created..a cycle that repeats itself endlessly.

Given the incessant change in consumption patterns and consumer behavior, a food producer must keep abreast with new developments in order to stay in business.
Recognizing the facts laid out above, DBE Group considers it our duty to strive for constant development and carry on our work in an efficient, competitive and sustainable manner.
