Delighting Malaysian Snack Lovers

URC traces its roots back to the Philippines in 1952, when Mr. John Gokongwei, Jr. first started out as a trader. From milling and producing glucose and corn starch, Mr. John was constantly eyeing the future and thus began producing his own branded consumer foods. His vision of delighting consumers led to the creation of one of the biggest snack food companies in the Philippines, with an extensive and diversified portfolio. He continued bringing his vision to life outside of the Philippines as URC brands made its way into homes all over the world, with a strong presence in markets like Thailand, China, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Singapore, among others.

In Malaysia, our brands include household names such as Jack ‘n Jill Potato Chips, Cream-O, Cloud 9, NIPS, Roller Coaster and more. Our brands have touched Malaysians’ lives through the years and continue to reflect Mr. John’s founding commitment to offer the best in quality, value, convenience and snacking enjoyment for every fun occasion.
