A long time ago, during the Tin Rush 1880s, many people from China left their homeland to seek fortunes else where in the world. They ventured into all corners of the world and some landed in Malaya, where they made their home in Menglembu, Perak. Their main activity is mining tin. As this grew, so did the other economic pursuits, one of which is growing groundnuts. The people of Menglembu soon learned to love the groundnuts for its unique flavor and crunchiness. Before long, the term 'Menglembu Groundnuts' became a household name.
