At SMH, we
Preserve heritage from past generations,
Pass on tradition to future generations, and
Bring quality you can taste to this present generation.
“When I first embarked on this business in the early 60s, my children were all very young. Never planning beyond the present, my wife and I started making Dim Sum from home and we had to learn the ropes through hands-on experience.
Back then, I would never have envisioned what the company would be like today.”
Mr. Tay Yeong Kwee
Founder and Executive Chairman
In the 70s, SMH became the first Dim Sum company in South East Asia to automate its manufacturing processes. Since then,
technology and hands-on experience have culminated into a methodology for the production of chilled and frozen Dim Sum
that retain its nutrition, freshness and taste.
1980s - 1990s
The early 90s witnessed a boom in the demand for convenience food. SMH‘s Malaysia factory was established to meet the demand. This in turn opened another market for SMH products, specifically the Muslim community. SMH Foods Enterprise (Singapore) was set up in 1997 to serve the Halal market.
SMH in its dedication to produce Dim Sum of the highest quality continuously employs the most stringent production methodology.
It is through this commitment to high standards that in 2001, SMH becomes the first Dim Sum company in Singapore to be awarded both the ISO 9001 and HACCP certifications.
Innovation and New Horizons
In the last decade, SMH has continuously innovate on new trending products and improved quality. SMH has also steadily increased its exports overseas, making headway into Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Australia. The export market will remain SMH's strategic thrust in the near future as it builds business relationships with new country and region-specific distributors.
