Seems like it’s been a while since the last Meet The Manufacturer! Today starts a new one with a Malaysian company called MyOri. They’re got some neat products in store, so without further adieu, let’s find out more about MyOri in the following interview I conducted with Diona Lim of MyOri.

THE RAMEN RATER> Can you start by telling me a little bit about the history of MyOri – how did you start?

MYORI> It all started when Mr. Peter Chen, our Chairman, a passion food lover decided to have his very own range of Penang local delights, in instant form. He gathered fellow food adventurers, and together, they started Original Century Food Sdn. Bhd., best known for its delicious instant noodles. Mr. Chen believes in using high quality ingredients available, and insist in not having any preservatives in his manufacturing. His love for noodles allows him to create new and exciting flavors.

TRR> For my readers who aren’t familiar with your product lines, can you tell a little about them?

MYORI> Our range of instant noodles in the market currently; White Curry Noodles and Green Curry Rice Vermicelli. There are a few different types and forms of instant noodles yet to be launch and we hope to make them available in the market real soon!

TRR> Why rice vermicelli instead of what noodles in your new green curry?

MYORI> Indeed, this is a very good question. We have tried out different types of noodles and sadly, wheat noodles did not stand out overall. To our surprise, rice vermicelli with our Green Curry turned out to be an amazing combo! It brings out the rich aroma of the ingredients and taste twice as good as the aroma while cooking. Food tasting results showed full votes from the team members!

TRR> Do you produce products other than instant noodles?

MYORI> After having great responds for our instant noodles, Mr. Chen sat down with the team members to discuss on future possibilities of related products and of course more delicious flavors of instant noodles. Meantime, the focus is on instant noodles.

TRR> How do your noodle products differ from those by other manufacturers?

MYORI> We believe in using high quality ingredients available, and not having any preservatives in our manufacturing. We strive to be as authentic, as “original” as possible when it

comes to the taste. Our greatest priority is the quality not the quantity; Mr. Chen has made this the Company Policy since Day 01.

TRR> Can your products be purchased outside of Malaysia?

MYORI> We have representatives in at least 8 countries and definitely expanding in a gradual manner in the coming months; as mentioned, our priority is the quality, not the quantity. You can shop with us online via www.myori.asia and we can deliver the noodles to you, anywhere in the world.

TRR> Where do you make your noodles?

MYORI> Our products are manufactured in Malaysia.

TRR> What is your signature product?

MYORI> Our signature product is Green Curry Rice Vermicelli. It has its unique taste and aroma as compared to many similar products available in the market.

TRR> How many packs, cups and bowls of instant noodles do you produce annually?

MYORI> As mentioned earlier, our priority is the quality, not the quantity. Thus, we are currently at around 30% of our capacity.

TRR> Have you ever thought about varieties like macaroni and cheese or pizza flavored instant noodles?

MYORI>Well, interesting. We won’t deny, there are possibilities, in the coming future, we may look into western flavors of instant noodles or products.

TRR> To most in the USA, Malaysia sounds like a very exotic place – can you tell us a little about daily life there?

MYORI> Malaysia has very rich cultural life, much of which revolves around the traditional festivities of its diverse population. People from many different parts of the world live in Malaysia. The majorities are Malays, follow by Chinese, Indians, Europeans, and others. All of them have their own unique culture. They also have their own traditions and way of life; these traditions of all these people have formed the unique culture of Malaysia.

TRR> Why the name MyOri?

MYORI> It’s pretty simple, our Brand name comes from these two words, “My Original” – The Original Taste.

TRR> Are there any new products on the way from MyOri? Can you give my readers a ‘sneak peek?’

MYORI> Hahaha…. We would say, expect the unexpected! Thank you!

Well there you have it! Thanks to Diona Lim, Leslie Phoon (MyOriUSA) and everyone over at MyOri! Let’s check out their products!
