About Gan Teck Kar


Our Companies, Gan Teck Kar Investments Pte Ltd in Singapore, and Gan Teck Kar Foods Sdn Bhd in Malaysia, were established in 1991 and 1995, respectively by a trio of food-loving aficionados! We are privately-owned and employ a total of over 90 people in both countries. We source, import, and distribute premium, natural and organic foods from all over the world. Goods are imported by both air and sea freight depending on the nature of the products and the requirements of the ever increasing sophisticated demands of our customers. 


Our Companies have the logistical expertise to handle dry, chilled, and frozen products. Our Distribution network includes Retail Customers such as supermarket chains, specialty grocers, convenience stores and pharmacies to Foodservice Customers such as hotels, restaurants, pubs, cafes, ships and airlines. We currently channel our products to over 600 distribution points throughout Singapore and more than 400 distribution points in Malaysia. In both countries, we have our own warehousing facilities, ambient and refrigerated, as well as our own fleet of refrigerated trucks.


Our Mission

We aim to provide a comprehensive range of premium quality, wholesome and great tasting products to our customers. We strive to continually improve our service standards and response time to get products delivered timely to our customers. Keeping abreast with food trends, it is also our role to keep our customers updated with the latest food and menu ideas. Given the prevailing challenges of work-space and manpower constraints in a rapidly-growing economic environment of South East Asia, we take pride in working with our customers to provide solutions through sourcing of innovative products that enable them to optimize operational efficiencies, while also recognizing the specific needs of each customer.
