HEXA Food Sdn. Bhd. is a home-grown food manufacturing company, producing more than a hundred different types of spices, herbs, seasonings, ready-to-cook premixes and marinades in our factories. Our products are all HALAL, HACCP and ISO 22000 certified, and are available at retail outlets, supermarkets, hypermarkets, wholesalers, and our online store. We also supply to other food retailers and manufacturers in Malaysia, and export to countries like South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China, among others.
Based in Malaysia, HEXA originates from humble beginnings, and was established in 2007 to initially handle the marketing needs of Krisanya Sdn. Bhd. products (which were in existence since 1997) and since then, we came into our own. Our brand name, HEXA, is a blend of the words ‘Healthy’ and ‘Extra’. The reason behind this is that we want to emphasize the importance of 6 areas in our life that contribute to and shape our wellbeing, namely Self, Family, Physical, Career, Social and Spiritual health.
We currently have a diverse workforce of more than 80 people. In 2018, we set out to establish the HEXA IoT company, which is designed to meet the needs of industry and global expansion, especially in equipment and machinery, and to comply with food safety requirements and regulations nationally and internationally. Our work processes are now digitalized and we have created our own software called Pandora and HMI to ensure better connection, monitoring and production yields.
1997 Krisanya Sdn. Bhd. is established, manufacturing flour and spice products. Customers include retail outlets, supermarkets, hypermarkets, wholesalers, and food processors & manufacturers. (Food caterers, Canneries, Sauces, Snack food, Seasonings, and Noodles Manufacturers)

Krisanya products are being exported to countries such as Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, and South Korea. Under a partnership programme, Hexa Food also begins exporting high quality Sarawak pepper products and Indonesian origin spices such as nutmeg, cloves, and cassia to various Asian countries.

2017 We open our Concept Store in April 2017 which is located in Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam. The main ideas behind the concept store are to have a centre to display the whole range of HEXA products as well as give the opportunity to our customers to purchase our products at reasonable prices. Our online shop www.ebaza.com.my is updated and we launch our online stores in the top local market places (i.e Shopee, 11street and Lazada). Aiming to make cooking easier for our customers, we start increasing the production of seasonings and ready to cook premixes.
2019 We start to embrace the Internet of Things (IoT) in order for our manufacturing process to evolve and advance, and become IR4.0 ready. What began as an internal IoT team will further evolve into a IoT startup later. We also exhibit at prominent international food exhibitions such as Gulfood, Dubai and ANUGA, Germany.
