OLDTOWN White Coffee’s central food processing centre in Subang Jaya had an unfortunate incident on the morning of 21 September 2017.
An explosion happened at our production floor at approximately 8am. Eight employees suffered injuries of varying degrees, and all have been sent to Serdang Hospital for immediate attention and treatment.
With the help from Selangor Fire and Rescue Department, the rest of the building was successfully reopened in four hours as the damage was contained within the production room; our coffee and beverage manufacturing facility, warehouse, and office block are not affected by the incident.
We are currently working closely with the authorities on the cause of the incident.
The management of OLDTOWN White Coffee would like to assure the public that our employees’ safety and wellbeing are our utmost priority and will ensure all injured employees be well taken care of and treated by proper medical procedures.
We would like to assure there will be no interruption to our supply chain to our F&B outlets, nor to the trade for our instant coffee beverages.
We will provide further updates when the authorities have completed their investigation.
