Founded in 1940 by M.Abdul Ghaffar, the company was known as Fathima Traders and located at no.75, Penang Street. The business field was in the region of import and export of commodities such as onions, potatoes, chillies, garlic and spices.
The world war II marked the change in the company name to M.Abdul Gaffar – official change took place in 1949. Even with its
tremendous success, SAG remained a small family – owned and operated business. The sudden demise of M.Abdul Gaffar in
1961 was a great loss to the family. Nevertheless, the business was carried through by the late M.Abdul Gaffar's elder brother
M.Abdul Hamid from 1961-1980. Subsequently the unfortunate demise of M.Abdul Hamid in 1980 gave way to the young and
wise entrepreneur A.Abdul Malick (only son of M.Abdul Gaffar) to shoulder the responsibilities and carry through the legacy begun
by his late father. The starting point was changing the company's name to SAG Trading Sdn. Bhd.
Currently, we are importing from India, Myanmar, Hong Kong, China, Egypt, Iran and Indonesia. We also export to Local & International Market, mostly around South East Asia. We export Spices and Herbs (Crude Drugs / Raw Medicine). Our rapid selling Spices are Corriander Seed (Rempah), Cumin Seed (Jintan Putih) and Fennel Seed (Jintan Manis).
