How we started?

Both husband & wife, Branden & Allycia, the ‘university sweet-hearts’ started Abrand Food Manufacturing Sdn Bhd in 2012. The have gone through 3 same careers in 17 years journey together. 


Branden & Allycia were inspired by the book called Rich Dad Poor Dad’s by Robert Kiyosaki. They aspired to build a business but they were still exploring. So they registered a company called Abrand Food Manufacturing Sdn Bhd on 16 Nov 2012. 


Allycia’s sister was diagnosed with brain cancer and passed away 2 years later. Branden’s uncle also left the world due to cancer. They were in dilemmas. So, they researched into how humans eat and what causes cancer. They eventually realised that brown rice is the world’s healthiest food. 


After many rounds of testings and R&Ds, they have shortlisted 1 greenish brown rice out of 20 strains of brown rice.  They finally came up with NutriBrownRice® smooth healthy drinks. Since then, they started to commercialise the products and their first corporate client was a hospital!

A story about our founder

What continue to motivate us?

In 2015, more than 1 doctor suspected my eldest  son to have bone cancer. But luckily, it was just a bone infection. 



This health scare inspired my wife and me to be the ‘health ministers’ of the family. I was amazed to discover that brown rice is the world’s healthiest food!

However, my 3 kids dislike eating brown rice compared to white rice. So I created smooth brown rice drinks. My son also had a poor digestive system due to long term consumption of antibiotics. So we remove lactose in our brown rice drinks. Brown rice is naturally hypoallergenic. My son was finally happy drinking NutriBrownRice® and he grew from skinny to chubby. My family has started to be healthy!




We discovered a link between the lack of vitamin E in human daily diet and it’s benefits to fight against cancer. The good news is that the brown rice powder we produce keeps a high level of vitamin E.
