The name “Pawada” is an acronym that comes from a combination of their founder’s family names – “Patong” and “Wasli”.
Tuan Haji Wasli bin Ibrahim is a true blue Sarawak boy who started a small business selling sundries and supplies in Kuching in the 1980s. It was obvious even in those days that there was a demand for locally produced halal products from his customers. He noticed that most halal products had to be imported from outside of Sarawak. That realisation led to a dream – to produce premium quality halal food products for local and international consumption; and at the same time, contribute to the livelihoods of local farmers and villagers by engaging them as part of the chain of production and workforce.
Through much love, hard work, and commitment, Pawada grew from a humble cottage industry into the rising star it is today. They continue to evolved and grow, but their core foundation is based on developing the highest quality products and to keep their business anchored in their clients’ needs and reputation.
