Our Company was incorporated in Singapore on 6 March 2003 as an investment holding public company.
It was founded by our Chairman, Dr. George Quek and our Deputy Chairman, Katherine Lee. Our Chairman, Dr. George Quek, first conceptualized "BreadTalk" in April 2000 when he saw an opportunity for starting a bakery selling freshly baked breads and buns which are visually creative and attractive.
Our signature 'Flosss' bun sells at a rate of 1 every 10s worldwide. 100 million 'Flosss' buns have since been sold.
