Lotte Malaysia

Lotte Mart Malaysia or Lotte Malaysia for short is the largest importer of authentic Korean FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) as well as non-food items from the Republic of South Korea. The range of products imported covers the entire spectrum of the grocery department, from beverages, confectioneries, cooking needs, canned goods, chilled and frozen goods, dry goods to fresh produce and wines & spirits.

The company was incorporated in 2002 and begun operations as a family run min-market in the heart of the Little Korean in Ampang in the State of Selangor, Malaysia. Its primary objective then was to serve the Korean community in the country, suppling domestic Korean products to the Korean expatriates and families of the students of the international schools in the vicinity.

The airing of Korean serialized drama and sitcoms by the terrestrial television stations created an interest in all-things-Korean in the early 2000's. With that, the business grew leaps and bounds. Since then, the business has evolved and Malaysians consumers, instead of Koreans now play a major role to the success of the retail business.

Lotte Malaysia now has a strong presence in the country. It is the most notable importer of Korean products and imports a wide assortment of goods, from bestsellers such as NongShim's Shin Ramyun, NongShim's AnSeong Ramyun to unique and authentic fire-proof hardened-clay bowls and magnetic hoola hoops. The brands imported are: Lotte, Jinro, NongShim, Samyang, Orion World, Haitai, Daesang, Chongga, KGS, Hanil, Crown, Yakult, SannaeWon, SamHwa and many, many more.

Lotte Malaysia's principal retail outlet is at: Lotte Mart, A 15-1-1, Ground Floor, One Ampang Avenue, Jalan Ampang Utama 2/2, 68000 Ampang, Selangor. Tel: +603-4257 7788.
