Tan Kim Hock Product Center
TAN KIM HOCK had very humble beginnings. In the early 1930s, he was seen peddling around town selling dodol -- a soft candy made of, among others, coconut milk, rice starch, gula Melaka and some spices. After much perseverence, he set up a shop in 1939.
Today, he has huge outlets in Malacca that sell more than 100 types of foodstuff. Much of the raw materials are grown in his own estates and products are made in his own factories.
Recently, he built a complex -- which includes a hotel -- Wisma Tan Kim Hock and a huge sales centre catering to tourists in order to concentrate his interests. In addition, his products are being exported to countries in the region as well as in the West.
