Planta’s ‘Peraduan Setulus Hati’ culminates in an exciting Charity Bake-Off


Planta, Malaysia’s trusted margarine brand for generations, today celebrated the end of its month-long Hari Raya ‘Peraduan Setulus Hati’ campaign which saw 12 shortlisted finalists competing in a heart-warming charity bake-off.

Designed to bring festive cheer to the less fortunate, the campaign challenged and inspired the public to compete for a chance to have their cookie creation distributed by Planta to ‘bless’ more than 400 children across Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, in addition to a host of attractive prizes.

Aimed at sharing the efforts of a mother’s ‘air tangan’ with those who are less fortunate and so that orphans can experience motherly love through delicious cookies, the 90-minute bake-off saw Marhaini Binti Mohd Ashari emerge as the winner of the challenge where more than 5,000 mouth-watering Almond Stripes cookies were ‘raised’ for charity.
