Gardenia supports news and views that matter

Gardenia Bakeries Sdn Bhd has come forward to support the independent media by contributing to Malaysiakini’s campaign to raise funds for its new premises in Petaling Jaya.


“Gardenia believes that truth always prevails at the end of the day, thus, Malaysiakini is doing what is right for society with their transparent news reporting,” said Gardenia CEO Yap Kim Shin (left).

Yap said that his firm was supportive of Malaysiakini’s efforts to bring readers the “news and views that matter” in a truthful manner.

“As long as you write the truth, that’s it, because at the end of the day the truth is the only real story,” he added.

The reason behind this philosophy, said Yap, was the fact that Gardenia shares some similar experiences with Malaysiakini in being the target of “unfair criticism”.

Yap hosted Malaysiakini CEO Premesh Chandran and the Malaysiakini team at the Gardenia factory in Shah Alam yesterday.
