Established in the year 1952 under Kion Hoong Milling Company, Syarikat Kion Hoong Cooking Oil Mills Sdn Bhd. started business as rubber crepe, rice and copra milling. Since then, it has diversified into manufacturing operations for oil related products, such as RBD Coconut Oil, soap bar, RBD Palm Oil, Margarine, Shortening, Vanaspati, and other bakery fats.
The company started production of RBD Coconut Oil in 1960 using chemical refining process. Operated by a team of dedicated and well-trained personnels, the company was able to produce high quality cooking oil.

In 1989, with the growing demand for our cooking oil, we set up the first physical refining plant in Sarawak . This marked another milestone for our company. The addition of the new plant further allowed us to refine palm oil. This made our company the first palm oil refinery in Sarawak .
In 1996, we established the first margarine and shortening plant in Sarawak . Our company also obtained pioneer status in margarine and shortening manufacturing from the government.
