The story of Kicap Tamin began in
1951 when the
late Tuan Haji Mohd. Tamin (left) produced it on a small scale in Batu Gajah,
With a capital of just RM10 but lots of
determination, Tuan Haji Mohd. Tamin's cottage industry produced about 700
bottles a day with the help of his family members. Even though the production
was small, cleanliness, quality and taste were not compromised. Ingredients like
soya beans, wheat flour and others were carefully selected and combined to
ensure the fine quality of the sauce.
After a year, the demand for Kicap Tamin grew
beyond expectations, The product were by then well known amongst the housewives
and consumers in the kampung vacinity. Kampung children who travelled or
migrated to the cities also brought with them Kicap Tamin, thereby introducing
people in the cities to the delicious and delightful taste of the sauce.
