Satay Sauce Now In Cans
KOTA KINABALU, Aug 30:
Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) has successfully canned peanut sauce now available on supermarket shelves in its first commercial venture with a leading local food company.
UMS Food Science and Nutrition Faculty, in cooperation with Adabi Consumer Industries Sdn Bhd, has made the popular dish easily available to consumers since June.
UMS vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Mohd Harun Abdullah said the cooperation which began two years ago had not only benefited both parties, it also brought positive effects to the community by transferring knowledge and technology as well as in quality human capital development.
“The cooperation has benefited students in applying their innovative knowledge into viable commercial products,” he said when launching Adabi Peanut Sauce at the faculty yesterday.
Two variations of peanut sauce with chicken or beef, carrying the joint Adabi/UMS logo, are sold at RM4.90 in the peninsula and RM5.50 in Sabah and Sarawak.
