The Borneo Post - - Home -

MIRI: Sarawak Oil Palms Ber­had (SOPB) has do­nated 130 500ml bo les of Mer­ris Nat­u­ral Vegetable Oil (Clas­sic) and 150 2kg bo les of Mer­ris Pure Vegetable Oil to SMK Chung Hua Miri for its up­com­ing an­nual food fair to be held on Aug 31.

The fair will be held from 7am to 1pm at the school com­pound, to raise fund to sup­port the school’s op­er­a­tional ex­penses and for im­prov­ing its fa­cil­i­ties.

The food fair will fea­ture 55 booths sell­ing a wide va­ri­ety of freshly cooked foods, cakes, bev­er­ages, as well as dry food items such as rice.

SOPB head of Trad­ing and Op­er­a­tions Wil­liam Wong Sieh Tung handed over the items to the teacher in-charge Yong Hong Then, and wit­nessed by SOPB’s Con­sumer Prod­ucts mar­ket­ing man­ager Paul Ch’ng and teach­ers. The pre­sen­ta­tion was held at SOPB head­quar­ters in Jalan Ben­da­hara here.

“It is part of our ini­tia­tives to give back to the com­mu­nity as we strive to ac­tively con­trib­ute to­wards the need and well-be­ing of the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties,” said Wong.

Mer­ris cook­ing oil is pro­duced lo­cally in SOPB’s re­fin­ery with freshly har­vested Sarawak­grown palm oil. Mer­ris Pure Vegetable Oil has high con­tent of nat­u­ral vi­ta­min E, choles­terol free, trans fat free and en­dures rel­a­tively high lev­els of heat, whereas Mer­ris Nat­u­ral Vegetable Oil (Clas­sic) is suit­able for stir-fry­ing, bak­ing, salad dress­ing and dip­ping.

The cook­ing oil is an ideal choice for the health con­scious as it con­tains sig­nif­i­cant lev­els of carotenes (Pro-vi­ta­min A) and to­cotrienols (Su­per Vi­ta­min E). These nu­tri­ents make it health­ier choice as they are good for eyes, heart and brain with high con­tent of nat­u­ral an­tiox­i­dants and anti-ageing prop­er­ties.
