Passed down through generations, Alan Chai Ming Lun, CEO of LEAVES Food Industries Sdn Bhd, born and raised in a humble household with three of his brothers, said the brand’s success was all thanks to his mother, Madam Josephine. 

What started as a worry for her children, knowing that they loved drinking soft drinks, she came up with a healthier option by making herbal tea for the whole family. 

She started her day by cooking herbal tea and went to a nearby coffee shop to sell herbal tea in the afternoon. She even drove a van all the way to Serian to sell herbal tea from door to door. Her unconditional love for her children and perseverance have led them to a successful life. Their first product was the Pat Poh herbal tea leaves hence, how LEAVES earned its name.
