The Management of OLDTOWN White Coffee strongly rejects all rumours and claims that their products contain pork. The allegation in the video that has been circulated on various social media channels is not true.
“We would like to reassure consumers that all our premises have held the Sijil Pengesahan Halal Malaysia (SPHM) from authorities since 2010. Our businesses take the Halal certification and regulations very seriously, and we ensure that all the ingredients in our food and beverages do not contain any traces of pork or non-halal elements”, as per its media statement.
Local representatives from the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs had visited the outlets in question for an inspection following the accusations and confirmed that they are false.
