About Khong Guan Biscuits
More than sixty years ago, two brothers – Chew Choo Keng and Chew Choo Han – left their village in Fujian, China in their late teens to come to Singapore. Full of aspirations and eager to eke out a living to support their family in China, they found work in a local biscuit factory.
Following World War II, their big break came when Chew Choo Han chanced upon some old war-damaged biscuit making machines being sold as scrap from the old factory where they used to work. He promptly bought them and with sheer determination and a mechanically astute mind, he rigged up a semi-automated biscuit production line using bicycle chains to move the biscuits on a conveyor system through an improvised brick oven. The enhanced production capability escalated sales and, in 1947, Khong Guan Biscuit Factory (Singapore) Pte Limited was set up with its first factory premises at 18 Howard Road. Eventually factories were set up throughout Southeast Asia and China with distribution across the world.
Let your senses run down nostalgia lane, while enjoying a rich experience that generations have enjoyed, and still do. Khong Guan Biscuits - “The Taste That Brings You Home.”
