Under the name “The Malayan Refrigerating Company”, the butchery business grew into an import and distribution of food to the Southeast Asian region. Although known for its supply of beef products from the Vestey’s cattle rearing and processing in New Zealand, Australia and Brazil, Angliss chose to divest these units and realign operations in the mid-1990s to diversify its product offering and supplier base. This strategic move positioned it to become a leading foodservice company in the new millennia.
