Kuala Lumpur, 21 September 2023 – Federal Oats Mills Sdn. Bhd. (FOM), a pioneering leader in the oats industry, is proud to announce a significant milestone as it inaugurates its cutting-edge oat processing plant. With a rich history dating back to its incorporation in 1965, FOM has continuously evolved and innovated, establishing itself as Southeast Asia’s first oat mill and now standing as the 13th largest exporter of oat products worldwide.

The cornerstone of FOM’s recent success lies in its strategic investments in advanced technologies. The plant has a total floor area of over 260,000 square feet and specialises in producing a diverse range of oat products including oat flakes, kilned dried hulled oats, oat bran, and oat flour. Over the past 15 years, FOM’s commitment to growth and innovation has led to a sevenfold increase in its milling capacity, backed by an investment of over RM135 million. Today, FOM operates at a milling capacity of 10 metric tons per hour, a testament to its dedication to meeting the rising global demand for high-quality oats.

YB Mr H’ng Mooi Lye, Penang State EXCO for Local Government and Town & Country Planning (representing Penang Chief Minister, Right Honourable Mr Chow Kon Yeow) stated, “FOM’s expansion is a testament to Penang’s sustainable investment location. Penang’s conducive environment not only allows industry players to participate and thrive but, also able to witness true commitments made to well-being of the state. I am optimistic for FOM facility’s capabilities to achieve greater heights for the years to come.”

Datuk Wira Arham Abdul Rahman, Chief Executive Officer of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) congratulates FOM on the realisation of its new modern oats processing facility, “The presence of this modern and fully automated facility aligns with the New Industrial Master Plan (NIMP 2030), which aims to encourage industries to shift away from labour intensive business models.”

“As one of the food processing leaders in Malaysia, FOM’s commitment to advancing its technology and production capacity also benefits the local vendors within its supply chain, creating positive social spillovers and improving local economies. In addition, its long-established Halal-certified oats products have opened up numerous opportunities within the global Muslim market, highly recognising Malaysia’s Halal certification. The increased capacity also aligns with the National Food Security Policy Action Plan, which aims to expand the accessibility and affordability of food, especially healthy food products. Malaysia is proud to be an international Halal production hub, as industry participants increasingly elevate into advanced food processing technologies for high standard of hygiene and food safety practices. We are looking forward to see FOM realising its “Captain Innovation Hub” in Malaysia and would be glad to facilitate necessary support.” he added.

Mr. Michael Chew Kian Hong, Deputy Managing Director of Federal Oats Mills Sdn. Bhd. reiterated “FOM will reinforce our capacity and product line strength, providing substantial room for growth and expansion to meet market needs. FOM has already, in the last three years, proven our strength in meeting the increasing demand of oatmeal and oat-based products in the region. I would like to emphasise that our company will continue to be deeply rooted in Penangas Penang has given us so much.”

“With 58 years of oat milling experience under our belt, we deeply commit to meeting demand and supply obligations, apart from corporate family commitments. We continue to be unyielding in pushing the limits of our own production, sales and marketing and human resource efficiencies. This commitment to innovation will continue to be the differentiating factor between us and the competition. At the same time, we want to do our part in helping to sustain our earth’s resources better for our future generations.” he added.

FOM’s commitment to automation and cutting-edge technology has allowed it to maintain impeccable control over the entire oat milling process, ensuring consistency and quality in every product it delivers to the market. This commitment to quality has been validated by its certifications from global food authorities, including FSSC 22000, ISO 22000 and HACCP, as well as Halal and non-GMO certifications.

From its inception, FOM demonstrated a commitment to excellence, quickly gaining recognition for its dedication to quality and innovation. In 1970, shortly after its establishment, FOM introduced the iconic Captain brand, which rapidly gained traction in the Middle East, as well as Southeast Asia market. This pivotal success paved the way for FOM to gradually expand its global export footprint, making Captain oats a household name in over 30 countries across the globe.

Looking ahead, FOM has ambitious plans for growth. Leveraging its new cutting-edge facility, FOM is looking to extend its reach into the rapidly growing plant-based beverage and meat industries.  FOM is also excited to unveil its visionary Captain Innovation Hub, which is slated for completion by 2028. This hub aligns seamlessly with the pursuit of healthier lifestyles, aiming to introduce a range of innovative oat products to the younger generation.

As FOM embarks on this transformative phase, it remains steadfast in its commitment to innovation, excellence, and customer satisfaction. The journey from its establishment in 1965 to its current status as a global oats industry frontrunner encapsulates its unwavering dedication and its relentless pursuit of excellence.

InvestMalaysia System Down Due to Power Disruption


Content Type:

KUALA LUMPUR, 23 APRIL 2021 – The National Council of Digital Economy and Fourth Industrial Revolution (MED4IR) chaired by Prime Minister YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin endorsed the establishment of the Digital Investment Office (DIO), entrusted to charge towards facilitating digital investments in Malaysia. The role of DIO is consistent with the MyDIGITAL Blueprint and the National Investment Aspirations, guided by the essence of the Shared Prosperity Vision (SPV) 2030.

The DIO is a fully-digital collaborative platform between the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to coordinate and facilitate all digital investments. The objective of this endeavor is not only to create awareness on digital investments in the country but to also strengthen the coordination among all Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) in promoting and attracting new investments in this fast-evolution segment.

Senior Minister and Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali remarked, “The Digital Economy is the engine of future growth for Malaysia. The setting up of this DIO is indeed timely in line with the evolution of the investment landscape in the region towards digitalisation and Industry 4.0, as it will create a unique value proposition for the upcoming digital investments. We are optimistic that with this structured governance in investment promotion and facilitation, Malaysia’s digital ecosystem will be further strengthened and primed for the future, ensuring the country remains competitive on the path of recovery post-COVID.”

Mr. Arham Abdul Rahman, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MIDA reiterated both the Agencies’ commitment to facilitate quality investments into the country, including digital investments, “This DIO builds upon Malaysia’s aspiration to position as a Digital
Hub in the region. As the principal investment promotion and development agency of the country under MITI, MIDA looks forward to work closely with MDEC to accelerate the growth of digital investments, which will indirectly develop more highly skilled local professionals and groom digital global champions. In the long run, this will enhance Malaysia’s competitive advantage, offering undeniable pull factors for investors, both foreign and local alike.”

“The DIO is a game changer as it will be the single point of contact for investors in our digital economy. It is a significant milestone for the investment facilitation, combining MIDA’s global infrastructure and MDEC’s subject matter expertise in the digital economy ecosystem to attract high quality digital investments to benefit our businesses and people, in line with our agenda of Malaysia 5.0,” said Ms. Surina Shukri, CEO of MDEC.

This collaborative effort between MIDA and MDEC will cater to the rapidly growing digital industries’ needs with a view to anchor global technology leaders, build local champions, and nurture future ready talent in Malaysia. In the long term, with the shift in the global digital landscape, the Government anticipates the DIO to play a vital role to position Malaysia as the preferred Digital Hub and firmly establish Malaysia as the Heart of Digital ASEAN in the Southeast Asian Economic Region.

In efforts to balance public health, livelihoods and economic sustainability, a One Stop Centre (OSC) has been set up by the Malaysian Government effective 2nd October 2020 to ease the movement of business travellers by expediting the approval of their entry to do business in Malaysia.

The category of Short Term Business Travellers comprises of:

  1. Potential investors seeking to do business in Malaysia
  2. Existing investors namely business owners, board members, executives and associates of companies in Malaysia (without Employment Pass)
  3. Business customers for product qualification and validation before commercial production
  4. Technical experts for ad-hoc emergency cases to serve single or multiple customers across Malaysia

Both Long Term and Short Term Business Travellers must obtain relevant visas (if applicable) from the respective Malaysian Embassy or High Commission or Consulate General Offices abroad prior to their departure to Malaysia.
