A local dairy products company and its shareholders have been the hot topic of conversation throughout this week.
It all started after a Facebook user revealed that the Chief Operating Officer (COO), Boss Susu (real name Azmi Zainal) only has a small part in the company’s shareholder stake.
In response, Azmi took to his Facebook to clear the air on the allegation. “Yes, my shareholder portion is small. How can a person who is already down in business and trading in the night market have a lot of money to own large stocks? The investments in the dairy industry cost hundreds of millions. After 11 years, the value of our company has soared many times as a result of our hard work. Alhamdulillah, the value of that small share has increased to millions,” Azmi wrote.
Despite only having a small stake in the enterprise, Azmi clarified that his biggest achievement so far is providing employment and business opportunities to the local community. According to him, hundreds of opportunities have been offered, especially to the rural people during his involvement with the company.
He shared, “We have provided 634 job opportunities, many rural children in Muadzam have benefited from this. We didn’t hire them as operators or herdsmen only, but many of us have raised them to become professional workers. We train and educate these people.”
In the post, Azmi also reminisced on his journey with the dairy brand back in 2016 and how the label managed to become a milk brand that competitors dread. Among the interesting parts include the company’s marketing strategy as well as the development of entrepreneurship programs for housewives called “Home Dealers”.
In addressing further on the revelation made by the internet troll, Azmi said that he’s proud of his journey so far. He responded, “I’m proud to be able to tell my kids on how their father is trying to increase the B40 group’s income. Whereas for Mr. Aliff 111, maybe he’s proud of it and might say this to his children, ‘Today, Papa has embarrassed Boss Susu. Many people said I’m good at digging deeper. Later, Papa will teach you how to do that.'”
“Praise the Lord, I didn’t raise my kids in that manner. I taught my children to be useful human beings so that they can serve the country,” he wrote. He then concluded by thanking the public for their undying support.
What are your thoughts about the revelation?
