KUALA LUMPUR: OldTown White Coffee is considering legal action against parties which recently made a false allegation against it.
In a statement issued by its management today, the halal-certified restaurant chain operator denied claims that its products contain pork.
It stressed that the allegation, made via a video posted on various social media platforms, is untrue.
“We want to point out that all OldTown White Coffee outlets have the Malaysian Halal Certification since 2010.
“The halal certification and regulations are not something that should be taken lightly. We have ensured all ingredients for food and beverages do not contain pork or any non-halal items,” it said.
It also said the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry had inspected the outlet depicted in the viral video, and concluded that the allegation is baseless.
“We urge everyone to stop sharing fake information.”
