THE healthy oomph of oats will be in Ipoh Starwalk, thanks to 11,600 sachets of Captain Oats Eazy-Go Instant Oatmeal and Instant Oat Porridge from Federal Oats Mills (FOM) Sdn Bhd.
The company is sponsoring RM15,000 worth of its signature products for the community event taking place on May 6.
The sachets come in various flavours, Honey and Raisins, and Skim Milk for the oatmeal, and Chicken and Mushroom and Mixed Vegetables for the oat porridge.
FOM executive director Michael Chew said the company was proud to sponsor the walk for the fifth year to promote healthy living.
“The Eazy-Go series is the perfect daily companion to provide consumers 45% of daily whole grains requirement.
“It is convenient to prepare, tasty and nutritious, an ideal selection for those with a busy lifestyle,” he said.
Chew also said FOM would be setting up a new RM120mil plant under the Penang International Halal Hub Food Zone in Batu Kawan.
Estimated to be completed by end of next year, he said the new mill will meet stringent health standards of European countries and catapult FOM into the global market where the company is already exporting its products to over 40 countries.
Chew handed over the sponsorship to Star Media Group Berhad’s sales and advertisement representative Mohammad Shohib Ahmad Ibrahim at his office in Mak Mandin Industrial Estate recently.
