Wong & Partners, the Malaysian member firm of Baker & McKenzie International, advised Pacific Global Ventures Sdn. Bhd. ("Pacific Global") on the disposal of an equity stake in Mamee Double-Decker Sdn. Bhd. ("Mamee") to Headland Capital Partners Limited ("Headland"), a Hong Kong based private equity firm. Partner Munir Abdul Aziz led the team and was assisted by senior associate Wong Sue Wan.

 

With more than 90 years of collective experience in the food and beverage ("F&B") manufacturing industry, Mamee’s highly experienced senior management team will target South East Asian growth markets in different market segments to accelerate its regional growth with the assistance of Headland.

"We would like to thank Wong & Partners for working with us on this important transaction. Their input proved to be important in shaping and concluding this transaction and we appreciate the commitment that was put in by the team," said a Pacific Global Ventures representative.

 

Established by the Pang family in 1971, Mamee is Malaysia's largest domestic food and beverage maker with a domestic market share of more than 30%. As the top ranked snack food business in Malaysia, it has a number of leading home-grown brands, including such as Mamee Monster, Mamee Instant and Sllrrrp! Noodles, Mister Potato Chips, Nicolet Swiss Herb Candy and Nutrigen Cultured Milk Drink.
