Sabah’s first local cooking oil, Bess, up for sale

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah’s first local cooking oil has been launched and is now for sale.

The cooking oil - Bess - is being packed in 2.5 litre and 1 litre bottles, and 1kg packets.

Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said the cooking oil is cheaper than other brands and is part of the government’s initiative to improve people’s livelihood.

“This is a good effort to develop the palm oil industry while providing job opportunities for locals, ” he said when launching the product in Tawau, Monday (Feb 3).

He said once the application for subsidy is approved by the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry, the price of the product is expected to drop.

The cooking oil is manufactured by a factory in Pasir Putih, Tawau.
